We do tons of innovative programs.
We have many visitors each day.
We also seek out partnership opportunities with local businesses and institutions. This allows us to bring in something new, add more of the materials that our customers want, and anchors the library as an exciting community social center with the "best of
the best, especially our staff!"
So where has the library of old...the "shush, quiet!" institution gone? They are out there still, sometimes in an academic setting, or other. Our library is an exciting place of experimentation, hands on activities, with quality programming, great collections and an amazing staff. It can be busy and loud as people use it as their social place.
Homer Township Library has changed with our dynamic communities' growth. With 600 visitors daily we are busy, active, bustling, with a diverse client base. And yes, some want quiet. With the expansion there are established quieter zones throughout the library. We welcome everyone who visits and want your experience to be a positive and productive one at the library.
- The window zone along 151st street is a great opportunity to be bathed in the window light away from the hustle and bustle.
- The Michael C. Olivieri Quiet Reading Room is a lovely quiet zone to study or sit by the fireplace.
- Six designated study areas offer glass enclosed rooms for private or small group study.
- The library "living room" where the magazines and newspapers are housed brings many together.
- The curved teen room is heavily used for study or socializing at varying times.
- Youth diner-type booths are popular, too.
