How do I request a book to be transferred to a library near me?
You can request to pick up your library materials at any of our twelve branches via the website, or by calling any branch and asking them to put the item on hold for you.
To request books via our website, go to www.myopl.com (or www.omahapubliclibrary.org and click on the Catalog). You will need your library barcode from the back of your card and the 4-digit PIN that you set up when you registered for your account.
From the online catalog, find the item you want. Then look for the "Place Hold" to the right of the title in the list of search results, or, if you have clicked on the title to reveal more information, there will be a blue "Place a hold" button to the left. Click on either of those. If you haven't already logged into your account, you will be asked to do so. You will be able to specify your pick-up location before you confirm the hold.
You will be able to see your holds by choosing "My OPL" in the top blue bar, plus you will receive a notification when the item has arrived. Email notification is quickest (you may want to see if your account is set up this way).
If you have any further questions, please email or call. Thanks!
