Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

The concept of this book is wonderful: a guide for librarians on how to better serve their homeschooled population. However, this is not a quick "how-do-I-deal-with-this-issue" manual. It reads more like a textbook. The authors begin by explaining what drives many people to homeschool their children and go on to describe different techniques. Their advice tends to be as time-consuming as reading the book: examine your collections, talk to parents of homeschoolers, talk to publishers of curricula, and possibly bring the two together. Many of the ideas seem very expensive, such as buying curriculum-supporting textbooks and special college guides aimed at homeschooled teens, which need to be updated often. Librarians are urged to go to Friends groups or apply for grants to create curriculum collections for this often-limited audience. The volume does include several bibliographies, though, and the list of books about the subject would be helpful to parents/families new to the process. A list of homeschooling organizations by state is also included.–Marlyn K. Beebe, City of Long Beach Public Library, CA

Format: Paperback
This book was written for library professional and support staff responsible for planning programs, collections, or services. The authors point out that many of the ideas presented here are not just useful when serving homeschoolers, but are also applicable when serving other teens and the general public. (summary by South TX Library System).

Discusses programming needs, collection development (including a core collection) and funding issues. Includes a sample grant application. Other books to help librarians cope with this audience include:

Homeschoolers and the Public Library

The Librarian's Guide to Home Schooling

Librarians' Guide to Homeschooling Resources

Guide to Homeschooling for Libraries

I do caution librarians not to be drawn in to actually teaching classes for this special audience. Remember your role as a source of materials for them, the same as for public school children.
