Books, online learning tools, tutors and more available to help students make the grade
Summer days are numbered and it’s almost time to get back into the school routine. With most Omaha area schools kicking off classes by mid-August, Omaha Public Library will be offering a variety of back-to-school events to help students prepare for a successful school year. All events are free and open to the public. Information about age recommendations and registration requirements for each program can be found at omahalibrary.org or by contacting the hosting branch.
Two candidates have been selected as finalists in the search for a new director of Omaha Public Library.
The finalists are Laura Marlane, executive director of Providence Community Library in Providence, Rhode Island; and Paul Paladino, library director at Montrose Regional Library District in Montrose, Colorado.
