Johnson County Christmas Bureau Collections 

Now through the beginning of December, both Olathe libraries will have collection barrels for the Johnson County Christmas Bureau. In addition, we are excited to announce that the future home of Olathe Indian Creek Library will be this year's holiday shop location!

For more than fifty years, the Johnson County Christmas Bureau has provided holiday assistance to low-income residents of Johnson County, Kansas.

You can help by donating items to stock their annual nine-day Holiday Shop, where pre-qualified clients, select groceries, personal care and household supplies, children's clothing, hats, gloves, scarves, coats, toys, gifts, and books pegged to family size, age, and gender.
