New Hobbies & Boredom Busters

It’s the perfect time to pick up a new hobby - whether you’re finding yourself with unexpected free time, looking for a new skill to learn with your family, or just plain bored with your usual pastimes, Omaha Public Library staff have ideas for you. 

If you’re interested in introspection, take a look at the Journaling or Digging Into Astrology, Horoscopes, and Tarot resources. Consider Learn to Podcast if you want to share your passions or ideas with a larger audience. 

For more indoor activities, check out the ideas in the Green Cleaning or Tabletop Gaming lists. As the weather improves and options for outdoor activities increase, maybe you’d like to try Bird Watching in Nebraska. It might also be the right moment to gear up with Bike Riding and Repair knowledge. 

If you want more suggestions, need to renew your library card, or just want a chance to talk to a librarian directly, OPL is still here. While the libraries are closed, staff are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both online through AskOPL and by phone at 402.444.4800.
