For the logic of MARC (and Koha), the 'homebranch' is *not* a biblio 
attribute (the biblio is a description of a book that can be anywhere in 
the world); your copy of it (the item) is in your library and recorded as 
such at 952$a

If (for whatever reason) you need it for temporary import purposes, you 
could use 'notes' 500$a but this is a long way from the intent and normal 
usage of MARC21.

Maybe you should explain *why* you want it in the biblio?  You might also 
want to refer to the logic schema of Koha at <http://schema.koha-community.org>
