Homeschool Happenings: Library Edition Greater Hartford Area

I often go to several local library sites to try and see what sort of classes and events they are offerings hoping we will find something FREE my kids will love.  Since I am already doing all that work, I thought I would share it with YOU – especially if you are a CT Homeschooler!

When I do my research, I am always looking out for unique or timely topics, things for ages 9 and up and events which are academic or will enhance an academic subject.  I will not be including things like “story times,” as most of us can find these pretty easily.

Always check out your local library’s offerings and make your presence as a homeschooler known to the librarian!  She/he may be willing to host or create programs for homeschoolers if they see the need!

Descriptions are taken directly from the library’s websites.

Enjoy!
