Read Off Your Fees Program

Youth ages birth through 18 with applicable fees can clear their library record while spending time reading. Youth may read at home or school and log the hours via the Read Off Your Fees reading log, opens a new window. If a child is too young to read independently, parents may count time spent reading to their child.

Completed program logs can be returned to any Omaha Public Library location. Each hour spent reading earns credit for $5 in fees. The minimum reading time for a waiver is 15 minutes, for a credit of $1.25.

A maximum of $10 in fees may be waived monthly. Read Off Your Fees waivers do not include collection agency fees, Interlibrary Loan fees, Metro Community College fees, or research fees.
