Bookmark Contest - changes made

There’s a change of plans in regard to the bookmark contest. We will be passing out entry blanks to children in grades kindergarten through fourth during the fall RIF distribution. That will take place sometime in October. Older children who want to enter will still have to pick up entry forms at the library.

Call 896-2121 for more information.

Business Expo in Homer and New Materials

Tomorrow is the Business Expo in Homer. Be sure to stop in at the Homer Grade School between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. It looks to be an exciting day.

The Homer Library will be there with a selection of items from our book and video sale. Also, we are sponsoring a bookmark contest for children ages 3 through 12. It will be broken down by ages so that the young ones are not competing against the oldest ones. Some of the prizes to be given out will be on display. So kids, get out your crayons, markers, whatever materials you prefer, to make a book mark.

Library Board members will judge the entries by age groups and award prizes. Winning bookmarks will be printed out and available in the library.

Our newest materials are Public Enemy by Will Staeger, Dead Wrong by J. A. Jance, The Owl and the Moon Café by Jo-Ann Mapson, The Mayo Clinic Guide to Alzheimer's Disease by Ronald Petersen, and DVD Brother Bear 2 from Disney.
