(March 15, 2020)

Omaha public libraries and community centers will close Monday, March 16 until further notice.

Mayor Jean Stothert made the decision following the first confirmed “community spread” case of COVID-19.

“It’s very important to take this step now to ensure the safety of our employees and our citizens who use these public facilities,” said Mayor Jean Stothert.

The City of Omaha has 12 public libraries and 13 community centers. Also closed effective March 16: Hanscom Park Tennis Center, Hummel Nature Center, Koch Family Tennis Center, Motto McLean Ice Arena, and Harry Koch Trap and Skeet Range. Indoor pools at the community centers will also be closed.

All Community Center and Omaha Public Library programs operated by the City of Omaha and private contractors will be suspended, including the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging senior meals programs at Florence, Camelot, Adams, and Montclair. Participants in this program should contact Meals on Wheels about home meal deliveries. Meeting room reservations at libraries will also be suspended.

All libraries and community centers will be deep-cleaned this week.

At this time, there is no change in the summer camp schedules at Hummel, Hanscom, Zorinsky, and Adams. Hummel, Hanscom and Zorinsky camps begin the week of June 1. The Adams Park camp begins the week of July 6.
