We went here primarily to print boarding passes, but were very impressed by this lovely, art-filled library. The weather was so perfect during the 2 weeks we were there that I didn't want to spend time indoors, but if it had been rainy I would have enjoyed spending a day at this library. Very impressive!

I always try to visit other librarys when traveling. Although I did not get a chance to visit inside, the building is new and beautiful.

This is a beautiful new library. I spent a few quiet hours working there between meetings. There is a large collection of reading materials, a variety of seating, including small semi-private 2-person alcoves along the windows. The artwork is delightful and nicely integrated into the architecture.

This library is friendly, quiet, a wonderful get-away and has an incredible book sale every year! There is something for everyone at the book and media sale. One year, I visited the book sale and filled my reading list for a YEAR!

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
