Indian Creek Library News

I've heard there is going to be a new Indian Creek library. Where is it going to be?
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. The official groundbreaking will be on August 25, 9:00am - 11:00am.  

What is happening now with the new building?
The architectural firm, the construction company and the project team have been busy working on the design to make sure it accommodates all the services the library would like to offer. The hope is to finish the design phase by March 2018. 

But I've been by the location and have seen activity. What is going on?
There has been some preliminary demolition inside the building to remove non-essential interior structures and to further inspect the health of the structure.  

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.
