Verizon HotspotDid you know the library has a Hot Spot for patrons to borrow? A Hot Spot is for people who don't have internet access but do have Verizon cell phone coverage. The Hot Spot will allow internet access free of charge to you for a 1 week borrowing period. Stop at the library for more information.
Teen Tech HelpAre you having trouble downloading ebooks? Want to know how to use your new iPad? Well, now we've got a team of volunteer teens who can help! Now that school has started, our teen volunteers will be available on Mondays from 3:00 to 5:00. We're grateful that they can still squeeze us in with their busy schedules. There's an appointment schedule at the front desk or you can just drop by. Bring your device or just your questions; our teen tech volunteers are here to help!
Online CatalogWhen using our online catalog remember that the catalog first searches for an item here at the Homer Library. If you don't find what you are looking for and want to expand your search to the whole library system, use the drop down box that says Limit By; and select All Libraries.
