Book Giving Tree & Holiday Updates
The Library Advisory Board and Friends of the Homer Library are working together for the third consecutive year to offer community members the opportunity to purchase needed books for the library with the Book Giving Tree. Staff compiles a list of needed books, then LAB member Jacque Peterson makes ornaments with book titles that hang from a Christmas tree generously donated by Spenard Builders Supply.  You can simply pick an ornament and bring it to the Circ Desk or Homer Bookstore to purchase the requested book. We thank you in advance for your contributions!

We are deeply grateful for all the ways you support the library. Every time you engage in the library experience by attending an event, checking out an item, or simply enjoying the facility; you are making it richer and more vibrant for the whole community. This month you’re invited to listen to Homer High School Swing Choir on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 5:30 pm by the fireplace, sponsored by Homer Downtown Rotary. Families can celebrate the darkest days of the year with us with a Solstice Storytime on Friday, Dec. 20, 6:00-7:30 pm. And of course, you can always find a good book and a seat by the fireplace!
Our holiday hours are:  December 24: closes at 1:00 pm; December 25: closed all day; December 31: closes at 1:00 pm; and January 1: closed all day.

Get to Know Your Library: Tech Room #5

Tech room 5. It’s the deepest, darkest, public meeting room in the library, and it holds our newest addition, the Adobe Creative Workstation. This workstation is loaded with the entire Adobe creative suite. Need to edit your movie? Do it with Adobe premiere and After Effects. Design a poster or magazine? It’s time for Photoshop and Illustrator. Edit your demo album? Adobe audition. Need to assemble pdf files for your business? It’s got the full install of Adobe Acrobat. This is just scratching the surface.
The goal of the creative workstation is to provide our community with access to professional media and design tools. We want you to make beautiful things. Great things. Don’t know how to use these programs? We’ve got the all the books and online tutorials to get you started. More cool features in tech room #5: Microfiche reader, Homer News Microfiche archive, 55” TV, Sorenson Video phone, and a text magnifier for visually impaired.
