Library opens collection for homeschoolers

Written by 

The Haywood County Public Library has opened to the public a unique library collection to help meet the recreational and educational needs of children that are homeschooled.

This special collection contains a variety of formats including fiction, biographies, history, language arts, mathematics and science materials. Funding to start the collection was provided by federal funds via a Library Science and Technology Act grant awarded to the library in June.

The collection is located at the Canton branch library on Pennsylvania Avenue.

A home-school patron card with specific guidelines will be made available for home-schooled applicants upon request.  Patrons using the home-school collection card will have access to the special collection with longer checkout periods.

828.648.2924.
