yeah, and if they keep playing hooky and not learn anything in school, they can someday be a omaha city councilman or state senator who graduated from Omaha Central High

that would cut down on those just going to listen to music all day and not look for a job


most libraries in douglas and sarpy county, u gotta bring ur own headphones to use on a library computer.


Open Door Mission day Shelter aka Downtown Omaha Library is the only exception to that.

regarding kids playing hooky, if they're over 16, aren't they free to drop out if they want? so can the school actually force them to be there?

It matters because these lazy asses need to get a job and contribute towards society instead of leech off of it. Maybe if the leechers became taxpayers, we would have more tax revenue to help support the libraries.

Tough economic times? That must be a joke. Have you seen the stock market lately? All time highs.

That doesn't answer my question. I asked what difference it makes to you how they use the library.
