What We Do

At the Omaha Public Library Foundation, we read between the lines. We support Omaha Public Library by increasing community access to lifelong learning and literacy through fundraising and advocacy.

Interesting Info

In 1985, Omaha was one of the last major cities without a digitized card catalog. OPLF was founded that year to raise $1 million to computerize circulation.
Omaha Public Library provides equal, inclusive access across the Omaha community at 12 branches and the library website.
Omaha Public Library serves nearly 75% of the Douglas County population, which the U.S. Census Bureau in 2016 estimated at 554,995.
