Construction

The Homer Township Public Library, established in 1980, serves as an information hub and lifelong learning center for the community.  Residents of all ages find information for personal use and enjoyment, along with an excellent staff to assist them.

In 2023, the Library completed a construction project that provided new public areas and building updates with the addition/renovation of space for use by all ages in the community.  This self-funded project included building and outdoor improvements.
