Omaha Public Libraries To Gradually Reopen This Month

Sep 2, 2020

The City of Omaha is opening some of it's libraries.  The city says five branches across the city will open September 21st.  It comes after Douglas County and the state of Nebraska funneled 60-million dollars in federal CARES Act money to Omaha to cover budget shortages caused by COVID-19.  The city says it wants to open three more libraries on September 28th, with the remaining four coming at a later date. All 12 Omaha library branches have been closed since March.
