Is a great building that is very large! You get free access to the computers but with a limited time. It's very clean, and it looks definitely new. If you need to do any research near homer, this is the sure place to go!

The Homer Public Library offers so much for both residents and visitors alike. Its huge windows, soaring ceilings, cozy nooks, and open reading area with comfy chairs & big fireplace make the library an enjoyable place for either quick or extended visits. The Children's Library has a good collection of reading materials for kinders, and a big carpeted area plus... More

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.

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...
