The Homer Public Library is a gorgeous building with excellent lighting and comfortable reading areas. Because it is so new, it's tech is very good and I believe it is a LEED certified building. Obviously, more books would get it that 5th star, but it's a small town library, after all.

The Homer Public Library is obviously a labor of love by a community who must love to read and have access to information. The library itself is beautiful, spacious, and inviting. It feels like a well-read, very quiet coffee shop. Wonderful to spend time in. And the kids room is sound-proof, so kiddos can have their fun too while adults... More

Absolutely, positively wonderful. We remember the old library from many years ago and this upgrade is delightful. Great kids area - I read my 6-year-old a few books while my hubs and 9-year-old perused other books. They have a great selection of used books for sale at a very reasonable cost. Be sure to check out the incredible garden that... More

This building is a perfect example of how our goverments waste our money. This magnificent building is sitting behind a Safeway which is hard to find and then find out how to get in their parking lot. The Library is just an average small town library in an expensive over built building. It is the only game in town so... More

Stop in to the Homer Library and the friendly staff will help you with using the computers. Let your kids explore the kid area and peruse the contents of the featured books. Check the local newspaper, there is always something going on, great place for a rainy day.

We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful library. The librarians are always such a big help and love the free computer help twice a month.
