S H A R K W E E K @ Homer Library!

Ahoy there, Matey!
Check out these decorated samples of our Shark Week Library Contest (ALL AGES) that begins June 30th.  Simply come in and purchase a $2 ceramic unfinished (white) shark bank.  Take one home and paint or decorate it with any medium you'd like.  Props and backgrounds are entirely optional, but can be no larger than 8"H x 8"W x 5"D. 

Patti had a great time decorating the attached samples.

Decorated sharks can be returned for display at the library through July 26.  Public judging will take place during SHARK WEEK, August 4-9. 

Entries will be judged in 4 categories: Most Popular, Editor's Choice, Most Creative & Movie Themed.  Prizes will be awarded in each category!

Reading is Jawsome!

Bookmobile is out and about

Have you visited the library's bookmobile?

The Bookmobile is a unique service of the Homer Township Public Library District, bringing the library closer to where people live or work. The Bookmobile, while functioning as a dedicated method of outreach, is not intended to replace traditional library services, but serves to bring library materials into areas of the library's 36-square mile district.

We also bring crafts, programs, and reading clubs to community members and attend touch a truck and Chamber events.  The bookmobile schedule showcases 36 community stops.  It is an amazing customized bus, transformed into a fun and inviting mini library.  I hope you get the opportunity to see it firsthand.
