Overbrook library nears completion; local 4-H club makes donation

Presenting a $500 donation for the Overbrook Library were members of North Osage 4-H Club: Lane Prewitt, Kinsley Garrison, Marrit Mead, Brandon Stahel, Avery Mead, Emma Berkley, Derek Stahel, Dylon Harris, Kyle Garrison and Lakin Stahel.

At its November meeting, the North Osage 4-H Club voted to donate $500 towards the new Overbrook Library. The 4-Hers felt strongly about giving back to the library that has for many years been their meeting location. The library has been supportive to the club, so giving back seemed like the natural thing to do.

The library has put out a “wish list” of items they need to complete the new library. The 4-H club decided the donation should go towards something needed at the new library. Members of the club attended a meeting of the Overbrook Friends of the Library on Nov. 26 to present the donation.

Today, the city of Overbrook announced the mayor and representatives of the library board met with the contractor and architect for a final walk-through of the new library. It was determined the interior is ready to occupy, and over the next few weeks shelving, books and other materials will be moved in and set up. The exterior will be completed as soon as materials and conditions allow. An open house has been scheduled for 1-4 p.m. Feb. 8.
