Omaha Public Library to reopen its South Omaha department
The last reopened library branch in Omaha will be welcoming guests again after months of closure due to the ongoing pandemic.
The Omaha Public Library says the South Omaha branch near 28th and Q will reopen at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 16.
OPL closed its twelve locations on March 16 to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and remained closed due to budget issues in the city of Omaha. After the state and county approve the CARES Act funding, Mayor Jean Stothert announced the reopening of the libraries.
The South Omaha office will be the last location to reopen. The 11 other OPL locations have already opened during a gradual reopening plan.
The OPL branches are open from Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Millard, Abrahams, and W. Dale Clark branches operate Sunday hours from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
Until further notice, masks are required for all OPL visitors. Capacity limits are enforced in accordance with Nebraska State Directed Health Efforts. See omahalibrary.org for complete information.
