It was a beautiful day on Tuesday for our Summer Reading Kick-Off at Frontier Park. Over 900 people came out to the park to participate in all the fun activities and learn more about the library's summer reading reading programs for chidlren, teens and adults. The Faraday Society from Olathe North High School kept the crowd enthralled with a variety of fun and exciting science demonstrations. There were also chess games, relay races, temporary tattoos, old-fashioned games provided by Mahaffie Farmstead, summer reading folders, and more. The Lenexa Sertoma Club sold food and drinks to help raise money to install a hearing loop for the hearing impaired in the meeting room at the Indian Creek Branch, and Olathe Noon Optimists provided free water to the thirsty throng. A fun time was had by all. A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped set up and run all the activities. It was a great way to kick off our summer! And we're only getting started.
