Homeschool Group Begins September 10
The Homeschool Group at the Craftsbury Public Library is beginning another season on Wednesday, September 10. This parent-led group will meet at the library on Wednesday mornings from 10AM to 12PM. Older students (aged 11-14) will take turns presenting and leading the group on a topic of their choice, from book binding to reading science fiction to building potato cannons. The younger group (aged 5-10) will participate in a book discussion. Families will read from a chapter book at home, and get together to discuss the book and participate in activities related to the book. The first book will be Caddie Woodlawn, by Carol Ryrie Brink, and children will be learning "chicken scratch" embroidery.
The librarians will be available to assist students with finding books that match their interest and reading level, to help families find books and resources to support their studies. This program is open to all, and any homeschool student aged 5 and up is welcome to attend. For more information, contact the Craftsbury Public Library at 586-9683 or at email@example.com.
