Little Free Library
Homer Library has established a Little Free Library at both Sendra Park and Konow Farm. An added Little Free Library at a new location is in the works for 2020!
The “take one, share one” Little Free Library is a popular addition to Sendra Park and Konow Farm. These libraries offer free books for all ages. Homer Library serves as “stewards” and adds books for the community every month. Visitors can simply take a book home or leave one to share with someone else.

Visit Sendra Park to enjoy our Storywalk, an interactive story set along the park walking path. Changed seasonally, the stories feature Libby and Barry, created by local artist Joe Olivieri. These characters offer fun activities to do along the pathway, as visitors read and enjoy activities along with giant story pages! Sendra Park is located at 14727 Greenbrier Ln, Homer Glen.
