Board members

 Friends of the Homer Library is led by a volunteer board of directors including the Homer Public Library’s director.  Each member of the board of directors serves for a three year term.  Each April, directors are elected on a staggered schedule at the Annual meeting along with the board’s officers which are elected annually.

Each member joined the FHL board for a different reason.

  • Suzanne Haines, a retired Homer school teacher, loves serving on the Friends of the Homer Library board because it is dedicated to promoting life long learning and literacy through a variety of creative programs. She is the board president
  • Elaine Burgess has served on the board for over thirteen years.  The Library is such a wonderful community asset, offering so many opportunities to expand one's imagination through books, multi-media technology, author and artist visits and many other programs.  It has been a pleasure to be associated with this dynamic institution.
  • Sean Campbell is a language arts teacher at Homer High School. He has served on FHL board for three years. Sean believes in the power of libraries for community development and literacy and is interested in developing youth programs and youth involvement. He is the secretary of the board. 
  • Andy Haas loves the library with its fireside reading room, quietly hoping that it will  eventfully contain reading jackets, a stuffed bear and a mounted moose.
  • Marylou Burton has been a proud library card holder for over 60 years, in far flung places from Spokane, Washington to Suva, Fiji to Juneau, Fairbanks, and now – Homer, Alaska.  She joined the FHL because she believes that libraries are one of the cornerstones of a democratic society.  She currently serves as the FHL treasurer.
  • Ann Dixon is the director of Homer Public Library. Her love affair with libraries began in a bookmobile in rural Washington state and grew to include a long list of favorite public, school and academic libraries. She feels happy and privileged to work with FHL’s dynamic, committed group of library supporters.
  • Mike Mosley spent 25 years yearning to spend more time in Homer beyond the holiday weekends. At last he is living the dream and has rooted here in our cosmic hamlet by the sea. He especially enjoys time with the Homer Library and weaving in its marvelous opportunities. As a Friend of the Homer Library, Mike has discovered new friends, remarkable community events, worthy ways to be a part and ways to give.

  • Fran Jacobsen is a retired middle school teacher and administrator. She and her husband moved to Homer two years ago after having spent twenty-five years in the Mat-Su Valley. In addition to the library, she also serves on the Center for Alaska Studies Board. 
  • Lyn Maslow
  • Isabel Kulhanek is the 2017-2018 Student Rep.
