Bringing in a Class?

Whether you are bringing 5 students or 35 students for a visit to the library, please do us the courtesy of calling first to see if we are able to accomodate your group. Dropping in is distruptive when other class activities are happening.


Need Books?

We have a great selection of children's books and other materials. If you know of an item that is housed at a different district library, we can probably borrow it for you! Just let us know. Want to search for items in our library and in the school district libraries, or the IRC? Go here:


Laminating Information

Laminating is done on Mondays and Wednesdays. Drop off items for lamination in the library workroom, located off of the main entrance. Post-it notes, paperclips, and pencils are available so you may label your items for later delivery. If we are short on help from aides, we will let you know when you may pick your items up. As a reminder:


1. We are unable to laminate items with a width greater than that of the laminating machine.

2. No popscicle sticks, glitter, paperclips, or thick items (such as cardboard).

3. No items smaller than 2 square inches - we are unable to feed them into the rollers.

4. No items for personal use; laminating services support classroom instruction.

Kansas City Metro Libraries

Use this list of local libraries as a way to find additional materials beyond what is provided in the Olathe East Library. Keep in mind that you may need to obtain a library card to borrow materials at some libraries.

Do not let the fact that libraries listed may be affilitated with universitites disuade you in seeking help. The University of Kansas, for example, will issue a library card to any Kansas resident who has a driver's license or can show proof of residence in the state. Know that some libraries, such as KU, charge a fee for obtaining a library card. Most libraries, however, provide access to their services without charge.

Ask librarians for help! They are trained to help you find the most pertinent, useful information and can also assist you with MLA formatting question you may have. Nearly all of them have "Ask a Librarian" chat features for live, online help.

Libraries listed below are in no specific order, so take time to check out the whole list!
