The Library welcomes homeschooling families to all of our activities and services.
In addition to our regular programs and services, we have developed a program just for homeschoolers on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Library's Community Room. Younger children are welcome to attend and toys will be available for their use. - Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join the Preschool Storytime in the Storytime Room following the Homeschool Protram.
