LIBRARY CLOSED: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1

In observance of Labor Day, the library will be closed on Monday, September 1.
The Bookmobile will also not be in service that day.

We hope you have a happy & safe holiday!

While we are closed, you can still place holds in the catalog, check out ebooks, & search our databases. Need to return an item? Leave them in the bookdrop located next to the library's front door!




SUNDAY HOURS 4-8PM ARE HERE!

The Homer Township Library begins our popular Sunday hours on September 7th. Many consider the 4-8pm hours very unique. The genesis of these Sunday hours began when we realized most libraries are open from 1-5pm on Sunday. Often after dinner my family (like others!) needed some library time, but area libraries closed by 5pm. So we decided over here at Homer Library to try unique 5-9pm hours. As we assessed peak use on Sundays, we eventually settled on the hours of 4-8pm. Time and again I am delighted by positive resident comments regarding these early evening hours. I am very proud that we chose to think out of the box for our community. Our strong usage patterns indicate it was the right choice for our library community. Drop in and enjoy an evening with your family soon!
