The Dr. Ronald W. Walters Branch Library is Wichita's newest branch library, located in southeast Wichita. Southeast Wichita previously had public library branches at Lincoln & George Washington Boulevard from 1956-1979 and at Colvin Elementary School from 1978-2003. The branch is named for Dr. Ronald W. Walters (1938-2010), an author, speaker, and scholar of African American politics. As president of the Wichita youth chapter of the N.A.A.C.P. in July 1958, he organized the Dockum Drug Store Sit-In, one of the first lunch counter sit-ins of the civil rights movement.
