A Taste of Literacy 

Join us for the Olathe Public Library Foundation's Annual Fundraiser Dinner. Support the foundation and enjoy an evening of dinner and entertainment.

This year's speaker is David Von Drehle. Von Drehle is an editor-at-large for TIME, where he has covered politics, breaking news and the Supreme Court since 2007. He is the author of four books, including Abraham Lincoln and America’s Most Perilous Year, published in 2012, and Triangle: The Fire That Changed America, which The New York Times called "social history at its best."  He and his family live in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Music will be provided by Nathan Ellsworth. Filet mignon and cedar planed salmon will be served and a cash bar will be available. Attire is business casual.  

Saturday, September 28 at 6:30pm at the Hilton Garden Inn (12080 S. Strang Line Rd. Olathe, KS 66062)

Tickets are $75 per person ($35 is tax-deductible). Sponsorships are also available. Please RSVP by September 20.

Ticket proceeds support the Olathe Public Library Foundation, a component fund of the Community Fund of Johnson County established for the purpose of enhancing facilities, providing books, and adding other services for the Olathe Public Library System. While public funds make libraries possible, it is private gifts that make them flourish. The Olathe Public Library Foundation ensures that the library system remains a vital community resource by providing a long-term supplemental funding program to assist in providing services not available through traditional tax-base funding. Foundation contributions are used to offset some of the costs of library system automation, expansion of reference and circulating collections, programming, and assistance for the disabled.
