Library Administrative Branch (LAB)
On November 23, 2021, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert announced that steps were underway to relocate OPL’s downtown library from its current location at 215 S. 15th St. to 1401 Jones St., and library administrative services to a former Shopko store at 3020 S. 84th St. (84th & Frederick). The 89,213 square foot building will be remodeled to house OPL administration, circulation, central distribution, and the genealogy and local history collection (open to public). The 10-year lease has options to renew. The City will pay $405,000 annually to lease the building, plus an estimated $500,000 for remodeling.
