About 100 Things:

Based on Tim and Lisa Trudell’s book 100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die, this program takes patrons on a tour around Omaha’s most interesting attractions, activities, restaurants, and more.

Referred to as the Gateway to the west, Omaha has so much to offer, from history, hiking, and an exciting local beer scene to great food. We take you on a tour of the city’s unique and interesting sites and include some fun facts and helpful tips.

So far, the 100 Things To Do group of patrons from the Agnes Robinson Waterloo Public Library have visited Memorial Stadium (go Huskers!), the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center, and more. Stay tuned for next month’s 100 Things activity!
