Library Administrative Building (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 houses OPL administration, circulation, central distribution (closed to the public); and the genealogy and local history collection (open to the 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.
