The Kiwanis Club and the Olney Community Council began working together in 1945, to create a Free Library in their neighborhood. The Greater Olney Branch opened in the former Olney Bank and Trust Company building on October 20, 1949. This photograph, taken during remodeling in the spring of 1948, shows the aftermath of the removal of the bank's 3780-cubic-foot concrete and steel vault.

Located at 5th Street and Tabor Road, the branch serves the Olney community.
