What does your reciprocal agreement with Lincoln allow me (a Lincoln library call holding patron in good standing) to do?
We do have reciprocal borrowing agreements with Lincoln, as well as Council Bluffs, Ralston, and Metro Community College Library systems. To set up or renew your card as a reciprocal member you will need to come in to your Omaha Public Library branch with current photo and address identification. After any blocks are cleared from your Omaha Public Library account (overdue books, fines, etc); we will set the card to ID Pending until the Circulation Manager has validated with your home library system (Lincoln in this case) that your account is in good standing. In order to be in good standing your home library account must be current and must contain no blocks that would limit privileges at your home library system. It may take a few days to validate the account for full privileges.
Full privileges will be in effect for one year for Lincoln applicants and until the end of the current year for Council Bluff's applicants. This will allow you full membership, including downloading eBooks, to the Omaha Public Library.
