WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Saturday was the grand opening of the Evergreen Community Center and Library, and community leaders from the city and county were in attendance for the big day.

The Library had a soft opening in February, but library leaders held off until the end of national library week for the grand opening. The library director, Jamie Prothro, spoke Saturday about what the center means for the community.

“Being able to see individuals, both young and old, really represents what this space is about. It’s about the community. It’s about learning. It’s about transferring stories among ourselves and enjoying time together,” Prothro said.

This summer, the Library will be installing a bilingual story walk in the park library leaders hope to make the center a destination in the city.
