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


All EllRay wants from third grade is to grow taller, better his basketball skills, support his friends, and keep his little sister from turning into a preschool bully.  Is that too much to ask?
