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.






BOB the Bookmobile

In 2016, FHL purchased our beautiful bookmobile, Books on Board or BOB, from the Glennallen Library.  The goal with BOB is to promote reading and lifelong learning by providing access to books for people in the community who are unserved or underserved due to physical, economic, social, geographic, or other barriers.

After a facelift, BOB rolled out to the public during the spring of 2017.  Since then, BOB has visited local schools from Chapman in Anchor Point to Voznesenka during the spring and fall. The bookmobile promotes library use and raises awareness of library services while allowing students to climb on board and select a book to keep and read.  During the summer months, community members exchange or borrow books during BOB’s regular stops at many local venues including Hornaday Park, Homer High School, Sprout, Pier 1 Theater, and the Farmer’s Market. 

In 2018, FHL created a book box lending program to schools with limited access to the library during the winter months when BOB is sleeping. Currently, staff at Voznesenka and Razdolna schools receive sets of quality used books from BOB along with high interest new books, which they loan out to students for a semester.


Sponsor a Spine

If you would care to financially support our bookmobile services, you can purchase a book spine along the bottom banner of the Bookmobile with either a name or your favorite book title.  It is $500 for a large book or $200 for a medium book, with donations providing services to grateful children and adults.

 Please email us at info@friendshomerlibrary.org for information or to donate
