Home school eventscheduled at library

The staff at the Shipshewana branch of the LaGrange County Public Library is making plans to help out home-school families.

Thursday at 10:30 a.m., parents that home school are invited to the library to get to know each other and find out how the library can assist with their children’s education. Library employee Amanda Smith will meet with parents to discuss ideas for future projects and activities that the parents or families can do as a group.

Home-school groups, such as the one being proposed by the Shipshewana branch library staff, provide families with an opportunity to develop personal relationships with other home-school families. According to the staff, teaming up with the library will give the group access to resources and activities that the families may not have individually.

Parents who have questions about the home-school meeting should call the Shipshewana branch library at (260) 768-7444 or shipshe@lagrange.lib.in.us.
