Wisconsin Homeschooling Parents Association 101—Library Edition

Virtual event, Thursday August 18, 1-2:30 pm.

Late summer is often a time when families are making decisions about the upcoming school year, particularly about homeschooling. Sometimes they turn to public libraries for information and resources to help them make this decision and gather information. To help us get ready, Rebecca Ahl from the Wisconsin Homeschooling Parents Association (WHPA) will provide us with an overview of homeschooling in Wisconsin, Wisconsin laws and resources, and information about the Wisconsin Homeschooling Parents Association. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.  A recording will be available until September 1.  Register here to attend live!

Youth Services In-Person Check-In
L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library, September 13, 1-3 pm

Explore the Eau Claire Public Library’s new digs—expanded youth services and teen areas, a bigger maker space, and a gorgeous new meeting room!  We’ll have time to connect and debrief about what went well this summer, and what was challenging.  And see each other!  I’ll bring some programming and maker kits to explore, too.  Please register by September 9.


And in case it is closer or a better fit for you, you are welcome to join the WVLS librarians on September 24 at the Marathon County Public Library in Wausau
