If you have books you’d like to contribute to the sale, please drop them off at the library. Anything we don’t sell, we’ll donate to the Wichita Public Library Friends of the Library for their sales.

Mowing is cutting into our genealogy time at the library, so we’re trying something new! On Saturday, Vince tilled a plot and spread seed for a native grasses and wildflowers bed.
The native grasses mix includes Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, Indian Grass, Switch Grass and Side Oats Gramma. The wildflower mix includes Black Eyed Susan, Blanket Flower, Blue Flax, Clasping Cornflower, Red Corn Poppy, Blue Cornflower, Dames Rocket, Evening Primrose, Lanceleaf Coreopsis, Lemon Mint, Purple Cornflower, Mexican Hat, Shasta Daisy, Western Yarrow, Scarlet Flax, and Purple Prairie Clover.
We hope this will make our lot easier to maintain and more interesting to visit. Stop by in a few weeks to see how we’re doing!
We had a terrific conversation this morning about the history of Wichita’s North Side, led by local historian Charlie Whitworth. Among (many) other things, we decided that life would be better if the streetcars still ran!
