Back-to-School Supply Drive

The school year is fast approaching, and some families find this time of year to be a financial challenge. The Olathe Public Library is partnering with the Olathe Public Schools Foundation in its annual Back-to-School Supply Drive. Please consider donating school supplies. The drive benefits local families that are in need of assistance in the Olathe School District.


The drive will run from July 7 through August 30

Donated supplies can be dropped off in collection boxes during regular library hours at either Olathe location.
