Homewood Public Library Earns a National Four Star Rating!

We have earned a FOUR STAR RATING for library service in the Library Journal Index of Public Library Service. This system scrutinizes statistics that describe library service outputs, such as visits, circulation, public Internet computer usage, and program attendance. Read more about the survey here!

Homewood Public Library is one of only five libraries in Alabama to receive such an honor and one of only twelve in the Southeast. This four star rating follows the three star rating that we received in the last Library Journal survey. See Full Results here!

Congratulations! I used the library in Homewood long before it was moved into its new location and my children loved it then, too.
