Former Wichita Central Library Items Up For Auction

Deborah Shaar
The Central Library in downtown Wichita served as the main library in the Wichita Public Library system for more than 50 years. It closed in May 2018.

The city of Wichita is selling hundreds of items from the former Central Library downtown.

An internet-only auction is open, with bidding set to close Sept. 18.

Dozens of tables, cabinets, chairs of all sizes, office accessories and shelves — and more — are available.

The items will be on display at an open inspection on Wednesday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the former library on South Main Street.

The Central Library closed in May after more than 50 years of service. The city opened the Advanced Learning Library at Second Street and McLean in mid-June.

Items will need to be removed by Oct. 2, 2018.
