Wilder Society

Early benefactors, Edward and Mary Wilder, helped raise funds to build the first permanent library in Topeka.

We give special thanks to those who are securing the future of our awesome library by including The Library Foundation in your estate plans or making an annual lifetime gift. For details on how to become a Wilder Society member, visit the Planned Giving – Wilder Society page.
