Homeschooling Resources

Are you interested in finding out more about homeschooling options? We have some resources to help you.

Do you homeschool? Asphodel-Norwood Public Library can help! Along with books we have on varied subjects at several grade levels, we can use Inter-Library Loan to get you items on subject matter we don’t currently carry; we can extend due dates for projects (just let us know when you borrow the item how long you need it for); a quiet room for studying if you need a less distracting area.


Online Resources:
