Homer Library News

What’s new in the Homer Library this week? For starters, we have four new DVDs coming in: August Rush, Bee Movie, Dan in Real Life and Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.

New books are coming in all the time, and we are getting more of the donated books on the shelf. Look for new titles in the paperback section. Donated hardback books have their own special section. You might find an older, overlooked goodie. I know I have. There are three large paperbacks by Ann Tatlock , one set in the depression, that gave me a better look at the problems of that time. Another dealt with a broken family, but broken in a way you might not have thought of.

Miss Cathy will be holding a Preschool Storytime at 10:00 on May 9, lasting for 30 minutes. Bring your little one for some fun and learning. Cathy will be assisted by Sue Jones, and will continue the Storytimes until the end of May.

If you don’t have a computer at home, or if yours is old or slow, we have just what you need: 2 new Vistas and 2 Macs with wireless internet. You can call ahead to reserve a time. Printers are available, too.

In addition to all the books, DVDs, computers, VHS tapes, and music CDs, we also have fiction and non-fiction books on CD.

We are open Monday through Friday from 2 to 7 p.m., except for Wednesday, when we open at 9 a.m. and close at 2 p.m.. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our phone number is 896-2121.

What's old is new again

At least at the Homer Library, you can find quite a variety of older, but good, books on the shelf. Since we moved, people have been very generous in donating books. You can find your favorite fiction authors, in hardback or paperback. In time, we will be adding dozens of Dr. Seuss and other children's books. Also young adult and junior books will be finding their way onto the shelves.

Meanwhile, check out our new DVD, Snow Buddies. And wish for spring!!
