Can You Help Us Expand our DVD Collection?


Following is the library's "DVD Wish List."  We are trying to update our movie collection and get rid of our VHS tapes. But some sought after movies we still only have on VHS and lack the funds to replace with DVDs. If you have any of them in DVD format and you no longer watch them, please consider donating them to the Homer Library! Your generosity will be very much appreciated!  Don't forget your donation to the library may be tax deductible.
