A milestone moment occurred at the new Indian Creek Library this weekend as all of the building’s exterior lights were switched on. The sunshade was a spectacular sight in the evening sky, becoming a brilliant addition to Olathe’s skyline. The lights within the sunshade glimmer like stars and can be easily seen from the I-35 overpass as you drive eastward.
The exterior courtyard will be a wonderful place to gather for evening events at the Indian Creek Library. Behind where the photographer was standing to take this photo, the courtyard opens to what will be a 200-300 person outdoor amphitheater, where OPL can host concerts, movie nights, story times and other programs.
This view of the library’s north side demonstrates how immense the library is and how much work is yet to be done. A walking trail will be laid, which will need trail lights installed and trees planted. Also yet to be completed is the café patio at the northwest corner of the building, where a fire pit, additional trees, and a water feature will be placed.
