Homeschooling Resources

Whatever your choice for your child’s education, we are always here to help! We have plenty of homeschooling resources for parents and children alike.

Teacher Cards

In addition to a personal library card, a Teacher Card is available for parents of homeschooled children and should be used for educational purposes only. Parents of homeschooled children must provide verification of homeschool participation to obtain a Teacher Card. We do not charge overdue fines for items checked out on a Teacher Card. Teacher Cards are not restricted to Campbell County residents. Just bring in verification of homeschool participation to receive your card.

Request Books

With a little notice, we can pull items to help with projects you assign. We can work with you to pull books and audio materials for you to check out and use with your lessons.
