• About Me

    Welcome to the Homer High School library page.

    I love helping students and parents find the information they need. Don't be shy. Ask for help.

    Check out my library at www.LibraryThing.com.




Library Catalog

(Also known as Alexandria Researcher)

  • Student log-in:   Use your student number as your ID and your last name as the password.  (If your student number begins with a zero, leave it off.)


  • Teacher log-in:  Use your e-number and your last name.


  • You may change your password at any time, and the librarian may reset it to your last name if you ever forget it.  Now, you may place holds on books, create and share a list of books, print your checkout history, write reviews, verify what items you have checked out, check for lost/damaged book charges, etc.


  • Digital books are not included in the Researcher.  Look below for how to access them on Overdrive.

Library Thing–The Ultimate Treasure Chest of Book Information and Social Networking for Book Lovers

You can enter this site by searching for any title or author.   Think of LibraryThing as a plethora of information about books and authors, including awards, all works by an author, opening and closing lines of books, important people and places in books or an author’s life, and any series to which a book belongs.

If you are intested, you can also catalog your own books on this site and request free, new releases each month.

Accounts are free.
