What's a Library for?
Check out our patrons' library memories and stories. You'll find more, like this one:
One of the first things I remember after moving to Homer is my mother taking us to the library to get library cards...
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.
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.
