.SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2016  

Are you ready for a summer of fun and good books?  This summer's reading program theme is On Your Mark, Get Set...READ!.  We will be offering a variety of fun and educational programs for kids going into 5th grade and younger related to sports, fitness, games, and more.  All programs are free!

The summer will include:

  • summer reading logs

We will once again be starting off the summer with our Summer Reading Kick-Off for the whole family on May 31 at Frontier Park.  This summer—while the Indian Creek Library is currently closed due to flood damage—we will be offering some Tuesday afternoon programs at the Indian Creek Elementary School located at 15800 Indian Creek Pkwy.  We will also be offering two big programs off-site at the Indian Creek Community Church located at 12480 S. Black Bob Rd.  We appreciate these venues allowing us to use their spaces during this time.  It's sure to be a fun and exciting summer at the library!

All young readers (going into 5th grade and younger) are invited to pick up a summer reading log at the Olathe Downtown Library beginning Monday, May 16.  We will continue distributing reading logs throughout the summer.  You may pick one up anytime. Reading logs will also be available at our Summer Reading Kick-Off on May 31.  Use the log to keep track of all your summer reading. Bring your reading log back to the library anytime between August 1 - 19 to receive a free paperback book!

There is something for everyone happening at the library.  So "get set" for some fun at the Olathe Public Library this summer!  We hope to see you there.  If you have any questions, you can always give us a call at (913) 971-6874.
