Introducing the Olathe Public Library goLibrary
at the Olathe Community Center 

We know life demands a lot out of you. So, we’ve made it even easier to use the library with the new goLibrary at the Olathe Community Center. 

The goLibrary includes a unique locker system that allows you to pick-up your holds, return materials, browse the catalog, place holds and check your account any time the community center is open.

Watch a short video about the goLibrary below. 

FAQs

How can I use the goLibrary to pick up holds?

When placing your hold online, by phone or in-person, simply designate "Olathe Community Center" as your pick-up location, just as you would normally select a branch. 

How will I know when my hold is ready? 

You will be notified that your materials are ready for pick-up in the same manner as you are now for other holds - either by phone or email. 

How long do I have to pick up my materials? 

As of now, you have 7 days from the date of the notification just like other holds. There is a chance this may change in the future, depending on demand.

How do I check out my goLibrary holds? 

When you scan your library card, or type in the number, a locker door will pop open. The locker will contain all of your holds which were automatically checked out to you when you entered your card number. 

What if I don't want one of my holds? 

Please return it in the drop box below.  

Is there a limit to how many items I can pick up at the goLibrary? 

Not at this time. If your materials will not fit in one locker, a second may be used. 

If I check out items at the goLibrary, does that mean I have to return them there too? 

No, you can return items checked out at the goLibrary to any Olathe or Johnson County location, just like other materials. 

Can I return any items to the goLibrary? 

Yes. It does not matter where you check out your materials. However, the goLibrary material return is locked and you will need a library card number to open it. It does not have to be the card number that was used to check out the materials. 

How do I use the goLibrary to check my account, browse the catalog or place holds? 

A touch screen set to the catalog is provided next to the lockers. You can browse the catalog or log-in with your library card and PIN  to place holds or manage your account.   

I am not a community center member. Can I still use the goLibrary? 

Absolutely. No membership is necessary. 

Is there someone there to help me if I have questions? 
 
Yes, the staff at the community center front desk is trained to assist you.
