Do you have any photos of the old main branch library building at 1823 Harney Street?

If so can I purchase copies?

Thanks for asking! We do have several images of the old library in our digital history collection. For example, William Wallace lantern slides of the exterior and reference room and an image from a local promotional book. If the image resolution in the above links is sufficient for your needs, those images are freely available for non-commercial use. You're welcome to save and reuse them or order prints from a photo processing service of your choice. (We don't have physical copies in stock, just electronic.) 

If you're interested in a higher-resolution TIFF copy of any of the above images, we can make arrangements to have it sent to you. Costs for high-res copies will depend on the intended use of the image - starting from $5 for personal use, scaling up if it's intended for public exhibition or publication. You can find the full fee schedule and detailed policies here

There are also a couple neat photos of the old library in the 1978 application to have the site listed in the National Register of Historic Places. You can find the images (and other information about the building) at the Omaha Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission website

If you'd like to order high-res copies, make note of the file name (ls_00028 for the first image, for example) and shoot an email back here or call 402-444-4825. 

Thanks again for using AskOPL!
