SHOUTOUT to Abby (the) Librarian, or Creative Ways to Accommodate a Wide Range of Ages in Library Programs for Homeschoolers

A couple weeks ago, blogger Abby (the) Librarian posted about a program for homeschoolers she conducted at her library in a suburb of Chicago. What I love about her program is that they divided the kids into two groups–older kids and younger kids–and offered a separate program for each group simultaneously. They gave the participants/parents the flexibility to choose which group they’d be in. If you have a colleague that’s interested in working with you on homeschooling programs, this is an excellent way to serve a wide range of ages at once, something that helps encourage homeschoolers with more than one child (and the stats tell us that most of them do have more than one child) to set aside the time to participate.

Bravo, Abby!

    Wow! Thanks for your kind words! :) It was a really fun program and I’m hoping to offer more like it in the coming months!
