Members of Omaha Public Library will soon be able to check out a FREE Pass to Fontenelle Forest!
Omaha Public Library (OPL) is joining Bellevue and Council Bluffs public libraries in a new initiative with Fontenelle Forest to offer free Forest admission to library members. All OPL branches will begin checking memberships out to patrons on Tuesday, May 1st.
We love visiting Fontenelle Forest and enjoying many of the resources the Omaha Public Libraries offer, and are very excited about this new partnership!

How It Works
Each of OPL’s 12 locations will have day passes available (one per day/per location) for check-out year-round to adults ages 18+ who are Douglas County residents or have a non-resident paid membership to OPL.
Passes are good for one-time admission on the day of the week designated on the pass. Each pass admits two adults and children from their household.
Individuals should check out the pass for the day they are interested in visiting Fontenelle Forest.
Only one pass may be issued per library card and customer.
Passes must be returned to any OPL location within five days of check-out. Unreturned or late passes will be subject to a $5 replacement fee.
How to See Which Passes are Available
To see which OPL locations have passes available for the day of the week you’re interested in visiting, visit omahalibrary.org and search for “Fontenelle Forest” in the online catalog. You may also call any OPL branch location to check availability.
Douglas County residents who do not have a library card may find more information about how to get a card at omahalibrary.org/get-a-library-card or by visiting their local branch.
Fontenelle Forest is the second community organization to offer free admission through Omaha Public Library. A similar partnership with Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium was announced in May 2017.
