Facility Closures

In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, Sump Memorial Library and the Digital Library/Interactive Lab at Papillion Landing are closed to the public until further notice. Our online collections and resources are available 24/7, and can be found under the "Digital Library" or "Services & Resources" tabs. Library staff can be reached for questions during our closure at (402) 597-2040, or cservices@papillion.org.

Digital Library Cards

Digital Library Cards

Interested in signing up for a library card during our closure? If you are a resident of the City of Papillion, you get a full membership to the library at no cost, which includes all the perks of our digital membership within it. If you are a resident of a Papillion SID, you qualify for a digital membership at no cost with the option to join as a full member for $50 per year per household. Digital memberships include access to all of the library’s digital collections and resources, including eBooks, digital audio books, streaming videos, and more!

Due to our closure, we are unable to complete our normal address verification process, and are only able to issue digital memberships at this time. Once the library opens, patrons, who were issued a card during our closure, will have 60 days to come into the library to show us an ID and a piece of mail for address verification. Patrons will also have the choice to continue with the digital membership or opt for a full membership. To apply for a digital membership, please call us between the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, at (402) 597-2040 or email us anytime at cservices@papillion.org

To explore our digital offerings, visit our Digital Library page and our Resources page.
