New temporary director

I would like you all to welcome Donna Swisher as your temporary library director. As some of you know I have stepped down as your director. The board is in the process of finding a new director.

I would like to thank all of you for the wonderful 9 years that I have been here.  It has been a lot of fun. I will miss all of you.

Book Club

book thief

Our Book Club meets the third Tuesday of every month at the Library at 7:00 pm. In March, the Club will be discussing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. The group has a great time when we get together, so try something different and come check out the Overbrook Library’s Book Club!

Donations for the Library Building Fund

The Library has started on a renovation/expansion project sparked by the generous bequest from Glen and Claudine Norton. Plans include a Community room with a kitchen added onto the north end of the library and renovations to the existing library. If  you are interested in making a pledge/donation to this project pledge forms can be found on the city’s web page at or you can scroll down on this page to local links and click on Overbrook, Kansas and it will take you to the site. You can also see the plans for the project on the city’s page. If you have any questions about the project please feel free to contact the Library. The project should be done by this fall.
