More About Angelou Northeast Branch Library

The Maya Angelou Northeast Branch Library was dedicated on Friday, December 20, 1996 to a packed crowd with Maya Angelou (1928-2014) in attendance. Angelou was an author, poet, professor, civil rights activist, playwright, actress, director, and producer. "I never knew a library named for anyone who was alive," she commented. "All the libraries that kept me alive and saved my life and then helped me extend my life, were always named for whole towns or countries or states or people who were dead." The Wichita City Council did have a policy against naming public buildings after living people, but made an exception for Angelou.

The Angelou branch was one of the first Wichita Public Library locations to offer free internet access to the public. Its popular materials include the Urban Fiction collection.
