Omaha Public Library will offer an opportunity for local authors and publishers to tout their accomplishments at its Author Fair on Saturday, Feb. 28, 1-4 p.m. at W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St., 1st and 4th floors. The event is free and open to the public.

Regular library users will tell you that waiting for the highly anticipated read that you placed on hold can be tough. While some readers skipped the wait by utilizing Omaha Public Library’s Bestseller Express, others accepted that new and popular items are simply hard to keep on shelves. Omaha Public Library has prepared a list of top circulating titles from 2014. The circulation of these titles contributed heftily to the more than three million items borrowed from OPL last year.
