Homeschooling & Family Engagement [YouTube, 1 hr]
September 9, 2020 Public libraries have a long history of supporting homeschooling families, who are often heavy users of community resources and develop close associations with local libraries. Homeschooling was growing in popularity prior to the COVID 19 pandemic. According to statistics from the US Department of Education the homeschool population has doubled from 1 to 2 million in the last decade. The pandemic has led to large increase in the number of families choosing to homeschool their children. During this webinar, we will discuss how public libraries can support homeschooling families.
Guest presenters: Janet Madsen, School Library Consultant for the Alaska State Library & Samantha Blanquart, Early Literacy Outreach Coordinator
