 The Overbrook Park neighborhood began growing after World War II. By 1960, the Schuylkill Expressway contributed to the growth of City Line Avenue and the Overbrook Park neighborhood.  The Overbrook Park Branch, located at Haverford & Woodbine Avenues, opened on November 2, 1972.

This exterior view shows the branch's forecourt, being used for a bake sale to benefit the library, on Election Day, 1999.  Also evident is the new signage over the entrance, which replaced the original circular signpost near the street corner.

The Overbrook Park Branch serves the community of Overbrook Park.
