Super Heroes are coming!

Superheroes are coming to the Homer Community Library? When? November 15th at 2pm! (Please note change of day - it was Oct. 25th but we had to move it due to a super hero scheduling conflict.)

Pre-school and grade school kids - come show off your super hero powers! Don't have any? Come see if you can find some while doing fun games and crafts! Wear a costume if you have one but if not just come as you are (you know.... as your secret identity person).

An aging baseball scout hits the road with his estranged daughter to pursue a promising young ballplayer, and they learn just how much they have in common.

RIFF Distribution to Heritage K-4th Grade
Did you know that the Homer Community Library still holds a free book distribution to the Heritage K-4th grade students twice a year? Even though we no longer get federal or state funding for the program, we decided that giving books to kids is still an important part of our mission.  We are thankful to the people who contribute to our fundraisers and volunteer their time to make this program still possible.

But when Sherman breaks the rules of time travel, our two heroes find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future, while Mr. Peabody may face his biggest challenge yet - being a parent.
