The Omaha Public Library's 12 branches recorded 2,372,350 visits in 2013.

Officials cited more operating hours, the Common Soil Seed Library, national and local author visits, more workshops in a variety of subjects for different ages, a popular Summer Reading Program, computer classes and story times for making the library one of the most-visited organizations in Nebraska.

The growth of the library's e-book and e-magazine collections helped build its online presence.
