The last two copies of the 2006 calendar are in the library for anyone who would like to purchase them at $6 each. These are the last two Homer Lions Club calendars ever. A real collector's item.The calendar will continue, but under the auspices of the Homer Library. The Lions Club has graciously given this community project over to the library.

eBooks for kids - some fun in the summer

Go to and click on the link for Tumblebooks, and chose from stories, non-fiction, puzzles and games, language learning etc. for children. The one book I watched and listened to was very well done. I had a group of boys behind me watching along and enjoying the story of a sleep walking father.

Summer Reading Program 2006

Voyage to Book Island starts tomorrow at 1 p.m. Children ages 5-10 are invited to come each Wednesday for the next seven weeks at that time for an hour of fun, games, crafts and prizes. July 19 will be the final program, with the awarding of prizes.

The Front Door

Have you tried to get in the building and found the door locked? Sometimes the door locks itself when it is shut hard. Sharon and Bub have worked on it to alleviate the problem. However, we are asking that when you leave the building, shut the door slowly. If you hold onto the door until it is fully closed, the problem won't occur.

Thank you!!
