FRIENDS OF THE HOMER LIBRARY
Our mission is to provide support for the Homer Public Library programs and services,
to raise funds that enrich the library experience, and to promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
COVID Safety Updates
Due to the recent rise in Covid cases in Homer, our beloved Homer Public Library is not currently able to admit patrons to the building. Many services are still available, though, such as curbside check out, Alaska Digital Library, laptop checkout and more. See Homer Public Library website for more information.
FHL is staying relevant and involved as we meet monthly via Zoom, planning, building and scheming behind the scenes (because we can’t meet in person) to continue to support library programs/services and to enrich the library experience.
