The Allegany County Library System is pleased announce a new resource for families who homeschool their children. The Library System already provides access to a wealth of print and online information resources, but will now have homeschooling kits on a variety of subjects that families can check-out to incorporate into their lesson plans.

The kits contain a mixture of books, games, and manipulatives, such as a Planetarium Projector. Subjects vary upon availability, but can include: Art, Astronomy, Geography, Learning to Read, U.S. History, and Science. The kits have been added to the Library’s online catalog and library patrons can place a hold on the items with their library card. Funding for these kits was provided by the Western Maryland Regional Library.
