Welcome to Kids’Corner!

The online home for all things “kid” at the Olathe Public Library.

We’re glad you’re here! Like you, we think kids are pretty important. That’s why we’ve made it part of our mission to encourage reading and lifelong learning, especially for children and their families. The library is a great resource for materials and programming to encourage young readers and learners. On these pages, you’ll find reading suggestions, homework help and the calendar of activities including our regular storytimes. Enjoy!

Staff Pick of the Month

An infatuated ox declares his love for a graceful gazelle through a series of adoring letters…and let’s just say, the feeling isn’t mutual.  Despite her repeated snubs, the persistent ox is not easily deterred, and in the end true love conquers all.  A sweet, funny tale perfect for this Valentine’s month.

Olathe Public Library Family Read Aloud Club

Children benefit from hearing books read aloud even after they can read on their own. For every six chapter books you read aloud to your child, you’ll get to pick out a free book. Visit the Children’s Desk to log your completed books. Books read aloud must be at least 80 pages and must be checked out from the Olathe Public Library. Families can earn up to four free books a year!
