Award Winning Volunteers!
In 2013, the Library benefited from 369 volunteers contributing a total of 20,698 hours, the equivalent of nearly ten full-time employees. That includes 5,808 hours of assistance from 196 teen volunteers.
In all, volunteers were responsible for an economic impact of $432,174, contributing toward the Library's $4.39 value for each $1 of support from the City of Wichita's 2012 General Fund. This makes a huge impact on the quality of service the Library is able to provide!
