Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium passes are no longer available.
An additional 75 tickets per branch will be released one more time in 2018 on October 1, 2018.
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium announced a partnership with Omaha and Council Bluffs public libraries to offer free zoo tickets to library members. All Omaha Public Library (OPL) branches will begin checking tickets out to patrons on Tuesday, April 2.
“We’re thrilled to offer access to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium to OPL cardholders,” said OPL Executive Director Laura Marlane. “These tickets provide local families with an opportunity to enjoy one of Omaha’s most beloved attractions.”
Adults ages 18+ who are Douglas County residents or have a non-resident paid membership to OPL are eligible to check out the tickets. Accounts with outstanding balances greater than $10 may start a payment plan in order to obtain a ticket. Expired accounts must be renewed and outstanding fines must be paid in order to obtain a ticket. Due to the great demand and limited supply, tickets cannot be held or reserved. Tickets are good for one-time use and expire on May 31, 2018. Only one ticket per library card and customer can be issued, admitting up to two adults and six children. An OPL library card must be presented to the zoo at the time of redemption.
An additional 75 tickets per branch will be released one more time in 2018:
