Homewood Cycle & Fitness is our Library Champion!

The Library Champion Award is given annually by the Jefferson County Public Library Association to individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to libraries or librarianship in Jefferson County. Homewood Cycle & Fitness is a recipient of the Library Champion Award for 2009. The cycle shop was nominated by the Homewood Public Library and was honored at the annual Jefferson County Public Library Association (JCPLA) Christmas luncheon.

General Manager, Faris Malki, and wife, Ellie Jo, accepted the award for Homewood Cycle & Fitness. For the past four years, the cycle shop has donated a bicycle that is awarded to a lucky child who reads at least five books per week during the Summer Reading Program at the library. Because of this incentive and others like it, over 900 children are registered in Homewood Public Library's Summer Reading Program each year. We truly appreciate the Malkis and Homewood Cycle & Fitness for supporting the library and our community with this fantastic contribution!
