Learning & Literacy Collection (including Homeschooling) Resources: Home

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

Learning & Literacy Collection

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


Learning & Literacy Collection

Learning & Literacy Collection materials are located at all three of our branches:

  • at Eastern between the Large Print books and Playaways. You'll find mostly homeschooling and study guides here.
  • at Fairmount on a freestanding shelf to your left when facing the fireplace. You'll find most of the outdoor education and reluctant reader materials here, as well as a growing variety of other topics relevant to parents and homeschoolers. 
  • at Main in the stacks as you walk toward the teen area from the service desk. You'll find a little bit of everything here. Explore the tabs above for more details. 

What is the Learning & Literacy Collection?

The Learning & Literacy Collection 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, and sex education. Career information can be found here, as well as materials on homeschooling and outdoor education. There are also materials to help educate and motivate reluctant teen readers. Because the Learning & Literacy Collection covers such a wide array of topics, I created this LibGuide to help you better navigate the collection. Additionally, you can do a "browse" search in the catalog for Call Number "LC" or 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.
