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

This non-fiction book is all about the ways different animals see the world around them.  Each animal that is talked about has a visual of how they see, as well as facts about their sight.  The book also offers a fun, interactive aspect with flaps to lift and see what lies beneath.
