Make Winter Break Great with OPL!

Winter break is a great reprieve for students who have kept busy with school, sports, clubs and other activities all fall. While most look forward to the time out of school, it doesn't take long for boredom to strike. Omaha Public Library can help bring excitement to those dull winter days with a variety of free programs for kids and teens, and resources to help keep their minds active.

Winter break activities at OPL branches

Abrahams and Millard branches, South Omaha Library and Main Library will host programs to make winter break fun without breaking the bank! Whether you want to get creative at a Maker Day, make some tasty food, play games or watch movies with friends, there's something everyone can enjoy at the library. As always, these programs are free. Some are recommended for certain age ranges and require advanced registration.
