Now that school has started, our teen volunteers will be available on Mondays from 3:00 to 5:00. We're grateful that they can still squeeze us in with their busy schedules. There's an appointment schedule at the front desk or you can just drop by. Bring your device or just your questions; our teen tech volunteers are here to help!

    When using our online catalog remember that the catalog first searches for an item here at the Homer Library.  If you don't find what you are looking for and want to expand your search to the whole library system, use the drop down box that says Limit By;  and select All Libraries.
