Friendly library with beautiful building. Open 6 days a week, but not many evenings so harder to access if you have a 9-5 job or work weekends...

I am in Homer for a month and I stopped by the library to get a library card. They were so helpful and gave me a lot of information about using the library. They have comfortable seating, lots of periodicals, independent study rooms, and wifi. My rental doesn't have wifi so I was happy to be able to get connected... More

This is a library. If that's why you're reading, you can stop now. However, there is more to it! Clean, new, and bright, this building is a gem. Great librarian staff, and a wonderful place to get books, read, and find public internet access. Be sure to inquire about events--especially the great opportunities for youth.

I needed to print an itinerary for my wife's flight home to get luggage checked. I was able to do it here with free computer access and pay-by-the-page to print things. I didn't have a printer with my laptop where the reservation was made. Homer library was a God-send.

It's a great stop for people traveling in the summer. Has all the tools you need for researching, printing, connecting to wi-fi, and just reading and relaxing. Very openly and has great big wide windows so you still feel the beauty of Homer. One thing I ddin't like are the study/reading cubes/sections by the huge windows across the high-top study... More

The Homer Public Library is a wonderful public facility available to both residents and visitors. Works by local artists decorate the inside and outside, and there is a special reading area complete with a fireplace, quiet nooks with tables to do your work, plenty of computers to get access to the Internet, individual rooms with their own doors for folks...

Who would think such a place exist in an Alaskan town? Well the public library perfectly reflects what Homer is all about: artists, writers, nature, fishing, and some good sense of community. And the building is great! Free Internet (wifi) if you'd like to check emails. Anyway Homer is the perfect place to start any Alaskan trip, or maybe to... More
