It's National Friends of Libraries Week!

Thank you to the Friends of the Olathe Public Library for supporting the Olathe Public Library!
In 2017, the Friends contributed $24,895 to the library and the library’s foundation. These funds supported SafeSitter® babysitting classes, Teen Commons renovations, bookmobile staffing, movie licenses, Kits for Kids and summer reading program prizes for adults, teens and Library to You

The Friends also donated materials to the Johnson County Corrections Center, Ability KC, the Salvation Army Layette Project, Olathe housing authority’s Reading Garden and various senior living facilities.
