The Haywood County Public Library has opened to the public a unique library collection to help meet the recreational and educational needs of children that are homeschooled.
This special collection contains a variety of formats including fiction, biographies, history, language arts, mathematics and science materials. Funding to start the collection was provided by federal funds via a Library Science and Technology Act grant awarded to the library in June.
The collection is located at the Canton branch library on Pennsylvania Avenue.
A home-school patron card with specific guidelines will be made available for home-schooled applicants upon request. Patrons using the home-school collection card will have access to the special collection with longer checkout periods.
