KANEKO-UNO Creativity Library

KANEKO-UNO Library is Open to The Public

Tuesday – Saturday: Noon to 5 pm

No Membership Required.

The KANEKO-UNO Library exists to encourage our patrons’ creativity by providing a space to access resources, instruction, and inspiration. Whether you are a student looking for a place to cram for your organic chemistry exam, a parent looking for a safe place to play with your kiddos, a team in need of meeting space, or somewhere in between, the KANEKO-UNO Library provides an open space for you in Omaha’s Old Market.

Interested in Our Space?

Library spaces are the core of community-building. The KANEKO-UNO Library seeks to offer its space for activities at the core of any community: off-site class sessions, social gatherings, club meetings, retreats, performances, and any other small programs or events. Our spacious, sunlit lounging areas and well-equipped workspaces provide an atmosphere suited for any kind of formal or casual get-together.

UNO students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use our unique space to strengthen the partnership between UNO and KANEKO further. These groups, along with KANEKO members, have the additional benefit of checkout privileges for our circulating materials, which include rare books, board games, and more.

We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12 PM-5 PM, and we are happy to work inside or outside those hours to accommodate a meeting or program you’d like to share with the community (depending on availability).

Those interested in utilizing our space can send inquiries to KANEKO Education Manager Katherine Scarpello at katherine@thekaneko.org.

KANEKO-UNO Library is a space that offers patrons access to resources and materials they might not find in their day-to-day environment.

Here at KANEKO-UNO Library, our attention is focused on stimulating and celebrating creativity. We seek to inspire people to expand their awareness and knowledge within an atmosphere of flexible learning.

Who can use the KANEKO-UNO Creativity Library?

The library is open to the public. Materials may be checked out by UNO students, faculty, and staff, as well as KANEKO Members, and UNO Library Friends.
