Our vision at the Olathe Public Library is “To meet the lifelong informational, educational and recreational needs of the community through quality services and resources.” The arts play an important role in meeting the educational and recreational needs of our community.
The library traces its roots to the Ladies Reading Circle, which started a public library in 1889 with a loan of 50 books from the state library. The mayor and the city council appointed a twelve-member library board in 1909.
