CT Library Staff
If you are on staff at a CT library, CHN wants you to know that we have an ongoing Library Info Project we’re working on. Please consider responding to it (and thanks if you already have), so we can share the feedback with the homeschool community.
Send your responses to the following questions to us via our Contact Us page.
Does your library have a free-of-cost space available where homeschoolers are welcome to gather for occasional support, social and information meetings? Daytime? Evening?
Would you like a CHN flyer to post in your library?
Do you have a play area in your Children’s Section? Yes? No?
Are your Library Passes available only to patrons who live in your town? Yes? No?
Would your library be interested in hosting a general Homeschool Info Night with CHN representatives?
Do you allow extended check-out time of materials for homeschool teachers? If not, would you consider doing so?
Are there any comments/questions we don’t have listed here that you would like to share with us? Please include.
Thank you for your time!
CT Public Libraries
Libraries are an integral part of homeschoolers’ lives. In a time when more and more libraries have endured budget cuts and closed doors, we are so thankful for their presence.
CT State Library
Some libraries offer homeschoolers extended loan times for materials they check out; access to educational kits available to teachers; homeschool storytimes; book discussion groups. Many will accommodate homeschool groups who need a meeting space, by letting them use their meeting room facilities.
Another resource that most (if not all) libraries have, is museum passes. These passes are free to town residents, at their local library. Some libraries will also give the passes to non-residents, as well. These passes offer free admission to a variety of museums, or a reduced admission price. Libraries and bookshelves are among many homeschool family’s most coveted resources. Support your area library, and say THANK YOU for their continued support of the homeschool community in CT.
