Library History


The Cosmos Federated Club was instrumental in organizing the first Overbrook Library in the small back room of the original Kansas State Bank building in 1928.  This was a volunteer project with each member of the club contributing time to keep the Library open and donating books for patron use.  Later the Searchlight Federated Club and the Fidelis Federated Club were formed and took their turns in keeping the Library open.
