Chick #6 arrived on Monday, April 20th

A small dark brown chick has hatched!  He made his entrance at 5:15am.  We have 11 more eggs to hatch and they should arrive over the next three days.  We thank Dr. Ed O'Brien of Animal Care Clinic for his sponsorship of the incubator!

Chick-it-Out Egg hatch is back!

Homer Township Library would like to announce our exciting live hatch program Chick-it-Out @ Homer Library. 

The library received one dozen eggs from the Children's Farm in Palos that we placed in the incubator.   Both of my children were Junior Farmers at the farm (great memories) and it was such fun to receive our chick eggs from Miss Kay.  We anticipate chicks will begin to hatch in approximately 21 days - join our contest to see which egg (all are numbered) will hatch first!  Then we will begin a new Name the Chick Contest, before the live chicks return to live out their lives back at the Children's Farm.

We will shortly have a webcam to view the chicks' progress in the incubator.  Pictures are posted to the library's flickr photo site. This is a very fun and exciting program for both customers and staff!

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!
