Homework & Homeschool Resources

Are you thinking about homeschooling your children? Whether it is for the year or a more permanent choice we have resources to help you begin your homeschool journey.  Resources found within can also help parents who are sending their kids to school and are needing homework resources.

Each year, teens across this nation are challenged to create and film their unique interpretation of the current year’s summer reading program theme.

For 2020, our theme was “Imagine Your Story.”

 To commemorate this anniversary, we are asking our patrons and guests to participate in our art contest.
