The Friends of the Homer Library’s mission is to provide volunteer support for Homer Public Library programs and services, to raise funds that enrich the library experience, and to promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
The Friends of the Homer Library (FHL) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community organization established in 1982. With the financial and volunteer support of its members, FHL provides resources for programs such as the Summer Reading Program, the Top Drawer Collection, pre-school story hour, and author readings, among others. FHL volunteers work closely with Homer Public Library staff to publicize the valuable tools and services available at the library to all community members at no cost, without discrimination.
FHL also provides resources for capital improvements, including raising funds for the new library and now outfitting it with items to make your library experience easier, including new lamps, benches, and e-readers.
FHL’s success is the result of hundreds of hours donated by FHL volunteers and the financial contributions of its members. Members and volunteers include residents of Homer, Kachemak City, Fritz Creek, Razdolna, Kachemak-Silo, Halibut Cove, Anchor Point, and Voznesenka.
