Every year we seek new art to display in the Fireside Reading Room. We are currently seeking submissions for the 2018-2019 year. Entries are due by October 8, 5:00 pm. For Complete guidelines click Here.
Get ready to read! Friends of the Homer Library will host our fourth Big Read in January and February 2019. Our selected title is Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast. Events will include a panel discussion on caregiving, book conversations throughout the community, a graphic memoir workshop with Lee Post, and more. We'll keep you posted when books become available!
The Big Read is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
