The Wynnefield Branch opened in June 1964, the end result of a long campaign by the Wynnefield Residents Association. This 1967 image shows the series of fiberglass mushroom-shaped fountain jets, installed in a shallow pool in the side yard of the library building. This was commissioned for the branch and created by Joseph Greenberg, Jr., in 1964.

The Wynnefield Branch serves the communities of Wynnefield and Overbook Farms, and is close to St. Joseph's University.
