Pandemic Resources for Libraries – One Year Later

We are now more than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve learned to Zoom, perfected curbside pick-up, and have probably forgotten how to shake hands.

While many of our Nebraska libraries closed their doors entirely for a time, the vast majority have re-opened. Reduced hours, time limits on browsing or computer use, virtual programming, and mask requirements are common. We’ve been keeping track of closures, re-openings, and adjustments to services here:

We have also assembled an interactive map of Nebraska libraries offering modified services during the pandemic: A map of libraries offering external WiFi is here:

We’ve also been keeping track of the latest guidance and resources for libraries, businesses, and families. You can find more on our pandemic resource page:
