BRIEF: Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. contest art presented at Olathe library


The new Indian Creek Library opened in Olathe in 2019. The old building was closed after a water line under the building broke, effectively killing off past plans to expand the branch, and leading the city to open a new location altogether given the cost of repairs. 

The top written, multimedia and art submissions in Olathe’s annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. contest are available for public viewing at the Indian Creek Library branch through Sunday, Dec. 11. 

Each year, students in middle school and high school in the Olathe school district can enter their works under a theme. The theme for 2022 was ““What Affects One Directly, Affects All Indirectly,” which alludes to King’s words: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
