She will have stories to tell and crafts to do. Another May event will be the final Reading is Fundamental (RIF) distribution of the school year.

The Homer Library offers four computers for use by the public, 2 Vistas and 2 Macs. On most days, they are heavily used. To increase availability, we have set a limit of one hour when other people are waiting for their turn at the computers.

So, if you come in and all machines are busy, you still may be able to use one of them.
