Homeschool Hangout

Last Monday of the month @ 3:00 

Homeschool Hangout is a great time to connect with other Homeschool families.  Homeschool Hangout is at 3:00 pm on the 4th Monday of the month.  Since homeschooling covers such a wide variety of ages we will have activities that are more geared toward their ability and interest levels.  

We also have a section dedicated just to our Homeschool Families in the back corner of the Library.  This section consists of materials and manipulatives for our families to use as needed.  New material is added frequently so make sure you are continually checking to see what we have.
