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.
New DatesDue to staffing changes we have made some adjustments to our tech programs.
Cubelets and littleBits will move to Wednesdays and meet separate days. The new dates for Cubelets are November 7 and December 12 from 4:30-5:15pm for K-5th grade students. The new dates for littleBits are November 14 and December 19 from 4:30-5:30 pm for 3rd-6th grade students. In January we will have set dates for the rest of the year.
