Getting Books from Other Libraries

We know that homeschoolers often have reading lists that they like to follow.  If we don’t have a book that you’re looking for, don’t worry!  We’re happy to help you find it.

Homeschool Pack Service

The Homeschool Pack Service is intended to supplement units of study with books from Children’s Services. Homeschool families may request one Homeschool Pack every 3 weeks. The number of items in each Homeschool Pack is dependent on subject availability and the discretion of library staff. Homeschool Packs will not exceed 15 books. Materials will be placed on hold using the patron’s personal library card. Complete the Homeschool Pack Request to get started.
