Upcoming Events for December 2014

We have another exciting month coming up here at the library.  We will have our usual events - our movie matinee on Dec. 10th and our family movie on Dec. 19th but we will also have Santa in the Library on Dec. 6th from 10am-1pm and we are working on a kids' program during the Christmas break from school.  Thanks to some recent donations, after Dec. 6th we are going to start to have a puzzle table up every day through the winter.  If you get bored or cold at home, come on in to the library and help us work on a jigsaw puzzle! 

For our movie matinee this month we will be showing The Jersey Boys, a story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The movie matinee is always the second Wednesday of the month and starts at 1pm. 

Our family movie this month will be The Penguins of Madagascar: Operation Special Delivery.  In this movie, the hilarious and highly protective Penguins are back and ready to right the wrongs of injustice and deliver cheer to those that need it most. In Operation: Special Delivery , Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, and Private get trapped in a snowstorm, try to escape from the clutches of Officer X, and deal with visits from unexpected family. 

Look for more information on our holiday kids' program - I hear that we will be playing detective and learning about things like invisible ink and secret codes. 

If you ever have a question about programming or anything else about the library please call us at 217-896-2121, email us at or check out our Facebook page!

But she knows a thing or two about baseball, and recognizing that her father's job is in jeopardy, she decides to help him -- even at the risk of derailing her own career.

Help Us Replace our VHS Movies With DVDs!

While the Homer Community Library has quite a number of DVDs available for patrons to check out, many of our classic movies are still on VHS tapes.  We have been reluctant to get rid of a VHS that we don't have a DVD version of but the VHS tapes take up so much room and most people no longer have a way to play them. Unfortunately, we do not have the budget to buy all new replacements. SOOO... we are asking for your help! If you have any of the following movies on DVD that you no longer watch, please consider donating them to the library.  You can also make a cash donation to help us out. A donation of $10 or more will help us buy at least one of these movies on DVD. Another way to help out is to come by the library and buy some of our used books.  The proceeds from our book sales help us buy new inventory.  We will have a BIG book sale during Homer Townwide Garage Sales on Oct. 3 & 4th out on Fourth St.

Girl with a Pearl Earring
This film tells a story about the events surrounding the creation of the painting "Girl With a Pearl Earring" by 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer. Little is known about the girl in the painting, it is speculated that she was a maid who lived in the house of the painter. This masterful film attempts to recreate the mysterious girl's life. Vermeer's wealthy patron and sole means of support, Van Ruijven, commissions him to paint Griet with the intent that he will have her for himself before it is finished. She must somehow secretly pose for the crucial painting without the knowledge of Vermeer's wife, avoid Van Ruijven's grasp, and protect herself from the cruel gossip of the world of a 17th century servant.

Can You Help Us Expand our DVD Collection?


Following is the library's "DVD Wish List."  We are trying to update our movie collection and get rid of our VHS tapes. But some sought after movies we still only have on VHS and lack the funds to replace with DVDs. If you have any of them in DVD format and you no longer watch them, please consider donating them to the Homer Library! Your generosity will be very much appreciated!  Don't forget your donation to the library may be tax deductible.
