Local library adds homeschool programs in 2020

(Dover, Ohio) – Dover Public Library Children’s Department will be adding some programming for their homeschooling friends. 

Classic Book Club will start Monday, January 6 from 1:30-2:30 in the children’s department.  This program is for ages 8-12 and will begin by reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.  Ms. Julie will lead the discussion which also will feature some fun activities, relating crafts, games, and recipes with the book. 
The class will meet bi-weekly. Another homeschooling program will begin Monday, January 13 and will continue the second Monday of each month through May.  Full STEAM Ahead will feature hands-on experiments and teach valuable concepts in science and technology.  The library’s technology equipment will also be used for these fun learning experiences.
Two classes will be offered.  Grades K-2 will meet at 1:30 in the children’s department and grades 3-5 will follow at 2:30pm.  “We are trying to meet the needs of our homeschool families,” said Children’s department manager Jennifer Gardner, “We have added a teacher/homeschool parent nook.”
The nook offers literature for homeschool programs where patrons can take information for their use and are welcomed to leave information for others on a bulletin board provided by the library.  There is also an Ellison machine, many die cuts, stamps, paper punches, reference books and other items for use as long as patrons bring their own paper.  A classic book suggested reading list has been added to aid in the reading education of the students also.
Please contact the library to register or for more information at 330-343-6123 or www.doverlibrary.org
