Remembering Our Fallen

Apr 15, 2013

“Remembering Our Fallen,” an exhibit honoring Nebraska’s fallen soldiers is on view at the Millard Branch of the Omaha Public Library through April 28th.

Encouraging families to embrace story time is the focus of the Omaha Public Library’s Primetime Family Reading Time program.

In honor of Black History Month, the Omaha Public Library is holding several events that celebrate the culture and contributions of African-Americans in the United States.

Last year, more than 2.4 million people visited the 12 Omaha Public Library branches.

Executive Director Gary Wasdin says the libraries continued to see every measurable aspect of use going up in 2011. 

Though people still use the libraries for books and reading, Wasdin says residents are often surprised to find out just how much more there is to find and do in the library.
