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.
