What's a Library for?
Check out our patrons' library memories and stories here.
You'll find more, like this one:
One of the first things I remember after moving to Homer is my mother taking us to the library to get library cards. I remember both of my parents being readers. I've always enjoyed reading and owning books. Over the years Phillips Free Library has grown to be a very important part of my life and an important part of this community. The multi generational programs that have grown over in the 21st Century have been amazing. I own an e reader, but the physical rush I get from holding and reading a new or old book is one feeling I will never give up.
Rockin' Readers -Kindergarten through 2nd graders are invited to Rockin' Readers on Wednesday, April 18th from 3:25 - 4:15 pm. Join us for stories, games and crafts to celebrate Dinosaurs! Parents are responsible for their child's transportation from the school to the library.
Toddler Story TimeJoin Miss Martsje in The DELL, our new toddler room, for Toddler Story Time on Wednesday, April 18th at 10:30 am. The theme for the week is Farms! Toddler Story Time has stories, songs, puppets and more. This program is geared toward toddlers but preschool children are welcome too. This program doesn't meet if Homer Schools are canceled due to weather.
Verizon HotspotDid you know the library has a Hot Spot for patrons to borrow? A Hot Spot is for people who don't have internet access but do have Verizon cell phone coverage. The Hot Spot will allow internet access free of charge to you for a 1 week borrowing period. Stop at the library for more information.
Teen Tech HelpAre you having trouble downloading ebooks? Want to know how to use your new iPad? We've got a team of volunteer teens who can help! Starting May 1st, our teen volunteers will be available on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 5:00. Bring your device or just your questions; our teen tech volunteers are here to help!
Online CatalogWhen 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.
