Introducing Our Homeschool Library!

The goal of our Homeschool Library is to give homeschool families a chance to figure out what works best for their child(ren) without having to buy materials right off the bat. This new collection will give families a chance to look through our different materials and try out different approaches for free. Once they decide what works best for their children’s needs, the families will know exactly what to get for their child(ren). 

In addition to textbooks and other curriculum materials, we will also have information sheets detailing the legalities behind homeschooling in the city of Watertown and New York State, teacher editions with complete tests and answer keys, supplemental materials to go alongside the textbooks, and more. Just look for the pink sticker on the spine label!

The fine print: 

– Homeschool materials check out for 4 weeks at a time

– 2 renewals are allowed

– Anyone can place a hold on these items

– None of the homeschool materials may be written in

– Copies can be made of any homeschool materials for $0.20 per page

– Some homeschool materials are marked “In-House Use Only”; those materials do not leave the Children’s Room unless to make copies
