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.

In the mid-1960s, a major remodeling/modernization for the branch was undertaken.  This is a copy of architect Louis E. McAllister’s mezzanine floor plan for the building.

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