How many apps do you have on your smartphone or tablet? Do you think you could create an app designed for Homewood residents?

The Homewood Public Library is hosting an app competition as part of the 2016 National Day of Civic Hacking.

Hacking usually means someone is stealing private or government information. But for the National Day of Civic Hacking, organizers at Code for America ask people to find ways to make technology work for them and their communities.

Did you forget about that book or movie that was supposed to go back to the Homewood Public Library?

Now’s your chance to return the late materials and do a good deed.

With the help of the Junior Friends of the Library, patrons who have fines of $1 can get the fine waived by bringing in a canned good for the Food for Fines Drive to benefit the needy at Respond Now, a helping agency in Chicago Heights.

The Food for Fines Drive continues through Friday, Nov 20.
