Are you ready for a summer of fun at the Olathe Public Library?  This summer's reading program theme is Make a Splash--READ!   We'll offer programs about things to do in the water, things to do with water, things that live in the water, and more.   There will be puppet shows, fun games, crafts programs, book discussions, storytimes, movies, weblogo2010Spanish classes, science experiments, and more fun than you shake a wet fish at.   Old favorites like Find Fido Friday, Read to a Dog, and our summer drawing contest will be back again.   And of course, we will be distributing summer reading folders all summer long for kids to keep track of all books they read this summer.   Return your folder in August before school starts and receive a free paperback book to keep! 

All the fun will begin with our Summer Kick-Off at Frontier Park on Saturday, May 22 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, and our activities wrap up with our Summer Finale featuring ventriloquist/illusionist Kevin Horner on Saturday, August 21 at 10:30 a.m. at Scarborough Elementary.  For more information about all of the events happening in the Children's Department this summer, click here.  You may also pick up a flyer listing all of our summer programs at either Olathe library.

We hope you will come "make a splash" at the library this summer!
