Mini Used Book Sale

Have anything that you would like to donate? 

We are asking for children's picture and story books - this might be a great time to recycle your favorites in the library book sale this month! 

Imagine another child or family enjoying one of your donated books - and it helps the library as all monies will go towards more materials for your use!  It's a win-win.

Plan to shop and enjoy some new great reads!

Spice up your reading life...go on a blind date with a book!


 It's library lover's month!  So why not make a blind date with a book?!

Check out this book, take it home, unwrap it.  Take this opportunity to try reading something you might not normally pick out for yourself.  It's fun!

If things don't work out with your "blind date" just return it to us without any hurt feelings ;-)

We hope you enjoy this opportunity to select a blind date book.  Kudos to Homer Twp. Library staff, who are very clever in promoting our collection of materials!

Teen library volunteers help make a seniors day!

Thanks to the many teen volunteers who bagged items for homebound senior "meal on wheel" participants.  This holiday gift bag was provided courtesy of the Gleaner's Homer Twp. Oak Arbor, an organization that supports the community in many ways.  Local donations from businesses allowed the recipients to receive a holiday surprise.

Thank you all!

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten


We've just initiated a free program that really puts the emphasis on family time and reading together.

Did you know that by reading just three stories a day you and your child will have read OVER 1,000 books in one year?  You will also have shared many special moments along the way and developed favorite family stories.

It's so easy to participate!  Come to Homer Library to register and then start reading.  You can fill in circles on your reading log and books read at daycare count, stories read twice in one day, books read at any story time program count...we've made it fun, easy, and provided cool incentives/rewards along the way.

Come in and check it out.  Reading readiness is an important Kindergarten concept and this program supports your child's imagination and growth to enjoying stories, books and of course, the Library!
