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.
Art is an integral part of the Homer community. Every year we ask local artists to send us samples of their work and a Community Artworks Selection Panel selects the pieces that will be displayed at the library. None of the works on display are for sale, but it is an opportunity for artists to showcase their work. We seek artists at all stages of their artistic endeavors.
Featured artist October-December 2021: Megan Frost
