Hello, thanks for asking!

Omaha Public Library patrons are able to check out Metro items as long as they are available in the general collection to patrons. However, if the item is reserved by a professor for a class then the item is not available to the general public for check out. Additionally the library cardholder must be 18 or older to be able to check out a Metro item. 

In looking closer at this item it looks as though it is cataloged in the Ask at Desk collection which does mean that a professor has reserved this item for their students to check out only. Since Omaha Public Library does carry this item as well, you always have the option to put this item on hold through the Omaha Public Library. 

Thanks for using AskOPL and please let me know if this did not answer your question.
