The Homer Community Library will be open on Monday, October 13, Columbus Day. We only close for major holidays. So plan on us being open. See you there!!

What's New??

We’ve been busy in the library lately. Cathy has been working on some exciting programming. Watch for her upcoming announcements.
Thursday November 20, the entire State of Illinois will be celebrating Go For the Gold, Family Reading Night. Homer Community Library will have games and guest readers to encourage families to read together from 6 to 8 pm. December 6 you may stop by the library from 10 am to 2 pm to make an ornament for the LIbrary's Christmas tree or one to take home.

Meanwhile, we’ve been adding a lot of new materials. Some of the titles are The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski, The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks, The Shack by Wm. Paul Young, Sunset by Karen Kingsbury – the last in the Baxter Family series, A Promise to Believe in by Tracie Peterson, On A Whim by Robin Jones Gunn, and three by James Scott Bell: Deadlock, Try Dying and Try Darkness. And we are working on cataloging the dozens of donated books that people have given to the library.
