Accelerated Reader Program

With a desire to help local children become better readers, the Homer Library will be focusing on AR books this school year. We have an updated list from the school, and are marking the books that we own and their location in the library. Throughout the school year we will be adding more AR books to our collection.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole

Five of the six books in this series for children are in and the other is on the way. Can owls have adventures? Wars of good versus evil? Author Kathryn Lasky thinks they do. You read, you decide. These are Accelerated Reader books. Points!! Points!! Points!!

The Sale Was a Success

Thanks to all who baked goodies for us to sell, all of you who bought those goodies and/or CDs, and all who did neither, but donated anyway. There will be some baked goods for sale in the library on Monday and Tuesday at 50% off. We still have CDs for sale also. Funds raised from the bake sale go into our building fund. Funds from the CD sale go towards more CDs.
