Learning & Literacy Collection (including Homeschooling) Resources

This collection will be especially helpful to parents, tutors, and homeschoolers.

What is the Learning & Literacy Collection?

Welcome, learners. You'll find a variety of useful tools here, including for homeschooling, but also so much more!

Merriam Webster defines literacy as "the quality or state of...having knowledge or competence." The Learning & Literacy Collection exists to help our diverse community be competent in navigating the world. It contains materials that are not easily confined in either the adult, young adult, or juvenile collections. You can find guidance here on many topics that can be difficult to talk about such as abuse, death, mental health, sex education, and more. Career information can be found here, as well as materials on homeschooling, outdoor education, and life skills. Because the Learning & Literacy Collection covers such a rich array of topics, this LibGuide was created to help you better navigate the collection. Click the tabs to start browsing. Please stop by any of our locations to have a look in person. It's a one-stop shop for materials to educate, inform, and improve yourself.
