New & Classic Movies Just In

We just got in our latest batch of new movies: Gnomeo & Juliet, Sucker Punch, Red Riding Hood, Burlesque, Country Strong, The Pajama Game, The Wiz, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Pirates of Penzance, Repo! The Genetic Opera, The Stoning of Soraya M, Slumdog Millionaire, Cleopatra & Taming of the Shrew. Yes-lots of musicals to fill help fill out our Hunter Music Collection.

Whenever we get in new movies they fly off the shelves so if there is something here you are just dying to see, you might want to call before coming out. We can tell you if it is in and hold it for you.

Stay Tuned for upcoming news on Homer Community Library MOVIE NIGHT. We will be hosting 1 - 2 movies a month through the winter and spring. We will announce a preliminary schedule soon! Come on out and enjoy free movies. If we get a good turnout we will continue our movie license for another year or more.

Give a Big Hand to Our Top Readers!

We just wrapped up our Summer Reading Program - Congratulations to our prize winners! Kailee Eldridge won the top prize for most pages/books read out of all the reading levels. She also took 1st prize for the Level 2 Readers. 2nd prize for Level 2 went to Sage Lundquist and 3rd went to Sophia James. Our top Level 1 reader was Aren Lundquist, 2nd was Mazie Ronk and 3rd was Jordan Eldridge. For the Read-to-me kids, Gwendolyn and Anthony Happ tied for 1st place, Olivia Wallace took 2nd and Nathan Eldridge took 3rd. All the kids did a great job reading this summer - let's keep it up! I had a great time with the Summer Reading Program this year and want to thank all of the parents and volunteers who worked hard to make it a success.

For other Library news... we just started our own Facebook page. Come visit us there to keep up with what is going on at the library.

We continue to get in new books about twice a month - don't forget to come see what we've got in. It's been so hot, now is a good time to find a good summer read and stay inside. Today I am cataloging about a dozen new early Reader books - we have some Disney Fairies, Barbie Ballerina, Tangled, Fancy Nancy and Princess and the Frog and some Star Wars, Transformers, Batman and Superman. I also just got in a set of manga - Hikaru no Go for the teens. Give me a day or two to get them all cataloged but they will soon be ready to go out!

And remember, the Library is always cool and a good place to go if your house is too hot!

We're Now on Facebook!

For those of you who just can't get enough information about your local library, YOU CAN NOW JOIN US ON FACEBOOK!! Yes, the Homer Community Library now has a Facebook page - please visit our page and "Like" us. While the blog is a good place for longer posts, I will be able to do much more frequent short posts on Facebook. I'm also hoping to get a few more teens informed on what is going on at the library by using Facebook. So, please, tell your friends and kids. I'm hoping to get 100 "Like"s before the end of July. You can find us at

If you search for Homer Community Library, there are two entries that come up. The active one is the one with the picture (and once you go to it, the one with the recent posts!) I'm trying to get the second one deleted to avoid confusion.

I will still be updating the blog but will be posting different types of things in each place so please don't forget to continue to check us out here, too!
