Omaha Public Library and Lauritzen Gardens
The Omaha Public Library (OPL) and Lauritzen Gardens will partner to offer free garden admission to library patrons. All OPL branches will be checking memberships out to library cardholders.
Each of OPL’s 12 locations will have day passes available (one per location) for checkout 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 and each pass admits two adults and children from their household. Only one pass may be issued per library card and customer. Passes must be returned to any OPL location within five days of checkout. Unreturned or late passes will be subject to a $5 replacement fee.
To see which OPL locations have passes available, visit here! Or you can also visit omahalibrary.org and search for “Lauritzen Gardens” in the online catalog. You may also call any OPL branch to check availability.
Anyone interested in obtaining an OPL card may find more information about how to get a card at omahalibrary.org/get-a-library-card or by visiting any OPL location. Library cards are free for residents of Douglas County.
Lauritzen Gardens joins Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, Fontenelle Forest, and Omaha Children’s Museum as the fourth community organization to offer free admission through Omaha Public Library!
Council Bluffs Public Library and Lauritzen Gardens
Lauritzen Gardens has also partnered with the Council Bluffs Public Library to offer family passes available for checkout to anyone with a Council Bluffs library card.

Passes are available on a first come, first serve basis. Holds cannot be placed on passes and must be checked out with an Adult library card. Passes not returned to the library within five days of check out are subject to a $5 replacement fee.
