Calling All Homeschoolers!

More and more families are choosing to homeschool their children, an estimated 850,000 nationwide. This doesn't necessarily mean the kids are sitting in their kitchens, with their noses in a book memorizing facts. Homeschooling often involves hands on learning with only your imagination to limit you. The Lansing Public Library has many resources to help families educate their children. We offer FREE programs that are fun and educational such as book talks, author visits, storytimes, movie nights and lots more!

And of course we have all the resources you need to lead your child on the road to learning and discovery including 2 years worth of magazines such as Home Education, Instructor and Bookbag, Literacy Ideas for Teachers.

If you need a room for your homeschool group to meet (available for a small fee) or have an idea for a program you would like the library to consider, please feel free to contact us. We're always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our patrons!
