Friends of the Homewood Library
A Message from the Friends
The Friends of the Homewood Library invite you to browse through our sales area--the Friends Corner--on the second floor of the Library. There you will find a wide array of items including both hard cover and paperback books, magazines, movies, records, and tapes (all at very reasonable prices) available for purchase everyday. Our dedicated volunteers keep the area stocked, so remember to check every time you come to the Library.
In addition to our ongoing weekday book sales on the mezzanine level of the library, we will continue to offer cashiered sales every Saturday in the Friends Corner from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Stop by often to pick up some wonderful unexpected bargains.
Please check the web calendar for information on upcoming sales....
Membership in the Friends of the Homewood Library carries with it many benefits, the most important of which is the ability to help the Library through many volunteer activities. The money we have raised over the years has allowed the Library to purchase countless off-budget items that in turn benefit library patrons and their families. Cost of membership is only $5 per adult per year, or a one-time payment of $100 per person for a lifetime membership. Membership forms are available at the circulation desk. We would love to welcome you as a member!
As a result of our volunteer activities since 1990, the Friends of the Homewood Library has donated over $360,000 to the Library. We are very grateful not only to our past and present volunteers, but also to Library patrons, the Homewood community, and beyond, for making that spectacular donation total possible.
Grade school and high school students are welcome to join Junior Friends of the Homewood Library. Past activities have included a backpack project for children in need, letters to children in Haiti, Valentines for Veterans, staff appreciation gifts for their favorite librarians, snack bags for blood drive donors, treats for book sale volunteers, and blankets for seniors.
Membership is a great bargain at just $2 per year. Sign-up forms are available at the front desk.
