Who, Where and When


The Homewood Public Library is located in the heart of downtown Homewood at 17917 Dixie Highway.  We are one of the busiest libraries in the south suburban area.  We  provide traditional materials, activities, and services, while continually integrating cutting-edge technology and virtual library services.  Our dynamic collection reflects our diverse community.

HPL belongs to the SWAN group, which manages the online catalog and the local interlibrary loan delivery service.  We are also a part of RAILS: Reaching Across Illinois Library System.

For hours of operation, basic contact information, links to maps, and information about when the library is closed, see the information links at the bottom of this Web page.



Our Past, Present, and Future

Since its humble beginnings in 1920, the Homewood Library has seen much growth, both in size and technology. We are once again in the midst of growth and change in an effort to better serve the people of Homewood, East Hazel Crest, and the surrounding communities.

With the support of our patrons, it is our goal to continue to provide this community with a top-notch facility. Our Objective and Vision statements showcase our commitment to the people of Homewood and East Hazel Crest, as well as the neighboring area.





The Library is governed by the Homewood Library Board of Trustees, the East Hazel Crest Board of Trustees, and our Administrative Librarian, Amy Crump. These dedicated individuals work diligently to maintain the high standards that the Homewood Public Library has long been known for.

The Homewood Library operates according to the policies set forth by the Board of Trustees.  Expected patron behavior can be found here.



Friends of Homewood Library


We are also fortunate to have a very dedicated group of volunteers known as the Friends of the Homewood Library. This wonderful group is responsible for all of those book sales that our patrons love so much. Their tireless efforts are truly appreciated by the staff and administration.
