Home educating? Baxter Memorial Library wants to hear from you!

BML was selected to participate in Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an American Library Association (ALA) initiative that helps library workers better serve their small and rural communities. The competitive award came with a grant to help BML support area youth, particularly those being educated at home, with an updated and enhanced collection of educational materials, programs and other resources.

A portion of the grant has allowed for the purchase of new nonfiction children’s books, and librarian Shana Hickman is hosting a conversation with Upper Valley residents about how the library can best support home educators and make use of the remaining grant funds to enrich the educational resources available to homeschooling – and, ultimately, all – families.

Join the library Friday, October 22 at 10am for a 1.5-hour discussion about how we can best support you and your family!
