Get a Library Card

The Official Site of the City of Homer Alaska

A library card is your key to all of the wonderful resources the library has to offer.  With a Homer Public Library card, you'll have access to:

  • over 45,000 books, books on tape or CD, and DVDs
  • 90 minutes of free computer use per day
  • our 24-hour downloadable digital audiobook and music collection
  • our electronic databases containing information about business, health, homework, auto repair, and much more

You must visit the library and apply for a library card in person.  Please be sure to bring a picture ID and proof of local residence.  The most commonly provided proof of residence is a piece of cancelled mail with the applicant's name and local address.  A list of other acceptable items of ID and proof of local residence is available on our Library Card Registration Policy (see below). General Delivery is not an acceptable address for a permanent card.

A parent or guardian must apply for a juvenile (person under 18 years of age) card in person.

Not a full-time resident?  Don't have a permanent mailing address?  Just visiting?  Please drop by the front desk and ask a librarian about library card options.
