On February 2, 1981, the Linwood Park Branch Library opened in the Linwood Park Recreation Center. It replaced a nearby storefront branch library as part of a desire to combine City of Wichita services into fewer buildings. Linwood is currently the only library branch inside a City of Wichita recreation center.
Stop at Hydraulic and Mount Vernon, walk east on Mount Vernon to Kansas St., then follow Kansas St. north to Linwood Recreation Center. Library is inside recreation center.
