The library has responded to the growing homeschooling population by offering benefits to families who are residents of Susquehanna County and registered in the Homeschool program. With a Homeschool library card, participants receive an extended check out period. Registered families are also eligible to participate in the Homeschool programs held monthly during the school year. With notice, the Outreach Department will gather a collection of books according to a specific request, or conduct a tour of the library and its resources.
Monthly programs, geared for elementary-aged learners, begin with a book and expand with activities. Topics criss-cross the curriculum but always include fun.

The Homeschool Swap Shelf, located between the Children's and Teen areas in the Main library in Montrose, contains a collection of homeschooling materials donated by homeschoolers for homeschoolers. Please take whatever is helpful to you. Leave materials you would like to donate to the cause in the box marked donations.
