In a Class of Their Own

School Library Journal, v51 n8 p44-46 Aug 2005
A study by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) found that in 2003, the number of students being homeschooled was about 1.1 million. That's a whopping 29 percent increase from 1999, when the department first collected information on the subject. In this article, the author shares her experience being a homeschooling mom. She realized that for homeschoolers, libraries are an invaluable resource. Furthermore, she states that for librarians who want to expand or improve their work with homeschoolers can find a great model at the Johnsburg (IL) Public Library and its Homeschool Resource Center (HRC), which offers one of the most extensive public-library homeschooling programs in the nation.
