Indian Creek Library News

Where is the new Indian Creek going to be located?
The Future Indian Creek Library's address is 16100 W. 135th St., located at the corner of Santa Fe and Brougham. 

Who is designing and building the new building?
Architect: Gould Evans and Group 4
Construction Company: McCown Gordon

When will the Future Indian Creek open?
The estimated opening of the new building is early fall 2019.

What is happening now with the new building?
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on August 25, 2018, which marks the official beginning of construction. Watch the video on the library's Facebook page. The current construction focus is on the shell and the roof of the building.  Crews are working to enclose the structure before cold weather, however more parts of the north wall will be removed before it is enclosed again. Removal of the wall will allow more light into the building as part of the design. 

How did the process of a new Indian Creek building start?  
In 2012, the mayor put together a task force to help determine the library's future. The result of this was the library's current master plan, which was presented to city council and was well received. This master plan included the recommendation that we renovate or replace the Olathe Downtown Library and expand the Olathe Indian Creek Library, allowing us to add much-needed community space to both locations and enhance services.
