The Homer Township Library begins popular 4-8pm Sunday hours on September 7th. Many consider the 4-8pm hours very unique. The genesis of these Sunday hours began when we realized other area libraries open from 1-5pm on Sunday. We decided to offer early evening hours to extend opportunities to visit a library and benefit library customers. Initially Homer Library was open Sundays from 5-9pm, and as we assessed peak use on Sundays we eventually settled on the hours of 4-8pm. Time and again we are delighted to hear positive resident comments regarding our 4-8pm early evening hours. We chose to think out of the box for our community and strong usage patterns indicate it was the right choice. Drop in and enjoy an evening with your family soon!


Our fourth annual Teen Open House is on Friday, October 3rd from 6-8:30pm (while the library is closed)! From 6-6:45pm, decorate a sweet treat to eat, show off your driving skills with Mario Kart, take some epic photobooth pictures, & spin the Krazy Wheel for prizes! Then from 6:45-7:45, whether you're participating in or just watching our Food Fear Factor competition, we'll have your stomach turning! And from 7:45-8:30, join us for raffles, pizza, and live music by Paris Green! Space for Food Fear Factor is limited to 20 participants, so don't forget to sign up -- grab a permission form at the library or click here to print one from home!
