Sometimes we think storytime is just for little kids, but everyone loves a good story. I know I do! This summer the Olathe Public Library is offering a special time for kids, going into 1st - 5th grade, to come and listen to a good story. It's called "To Be Continued." Each week several chapters of a book will be read aloud, and then the book will be continued the following week(s) until it is finished. A snack will be provided. Program will last about an hour. To Be Continued is offered at both Olathe libraries during the following times:
Mondays, June 7-July 26 - 4:00 p.m @ Indian Creek
Wednesdays, June 9-July 28 - 4:00 p.m. @ Main Library
No registration is required. Come enjoy a good story at the library this summer.
Young readers will have four opportunities to "Read to a Dog" this summer at the Olathe libraries. Just drop by the library during one of the scheduled times, and check in at the Children's Desk upon arrival to be assigned a reading time. There is no advanced registration, but reading time slots are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Here is the summer schedule for Read to a Dog:
Saturday, June 5 - 1:3o-2:30 p.m. @ the Indian Creek Branch
Saturday, June 19 - 1:30-2:30 p.m. @ the Main Library
Saturday, July 3 - 1:30-2:30 p.m. @ the Indian Creek Branch

This is a fun way to keep up your reading skills over the summer. Trained therapy dogs are provided by Pets for Life, Inc. For more information, call (913) 971-6874.
