Read for the benefit of others program starts today at Homewood Public Library

When you pick up a book this summer at the Homewood Public Library, you could be helping a local charity through the “Be a Hero in Our Community: Read for a Cause” program.

The library will be donating $500 to three local charities. Donations will be based on how many books are read in the Adult Summer Reading Program. The prizes will be divided between the charities — $250, $150 and $100.
