New DVDs

Do you need something to watch while you wait for the weather to warm up and dry out? We've got some new DVDs. Try Eragon, based on the book by the same name. Or Rocky Balboa with Stallone. Or Christy, the complete series of the television show of the same name. Lastly, we have The Nativity Story. All are ready to be checked out.

Book Drop

The new book drop arrived yesterday. It will be several weeks before it is installed. It will offer great convenience to library users and staff. On order is an AV (audio/video) drop, which will sit next to the book drop. We look for it to arrive next month.

Bids were opened last week. Work on the lighting should begin around the middle of next month. Progress is being made!!

What's New in Homer Community Library??

Each year a special calendar is published, giving important dates of Homer individuals and their loved ones. Birthdays and anniversaries of residents, their children, and grandchildren can all be listed on the calendar. You can buy a calendar for $3.00 plus $1.00 for each listing. Extra calendars are $6.00 each, unless you add a second family to the list and want a calendar for those listings.

Contact the librarian at 896-2121 or a library board member for more information or to reserve a calendar.

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins was honored recently with this year's 2007 Rebecca Caudill program award. This book is available in the Homer Library.

Progress report on the building project: Sara Essig, KC Jones and others have diligently worked on the demolition. Bids were opened this week for the electrical and dry wall work. That work should begin soon. The book drop and AV drop are ordered. We look for them to arrive in a few weeks.

Our newest books are Shadow Dance by Julie Garwood, Web of Evil by J.A. Jance, Bad Blood by Linda Fairstein, Sisters by Danielle Steel, and The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers by Lilian Jackson Braun.

Marnie Hess graciously filled in for Chris, who was in Oregon following the birth of a grandson. She recommends that the day before the spring time change is not a good time to fly east, crossing two time zones coming home, for a total loss of three hours.
