Homeschooling Resources

Library Resources

The Willimantic Public Library offers interactive educational programs geared toward the homeschooling community. Homeschool Fridays is held weekly on Fridays at 10:30 am, September-May. We cover a variety of activities, including science and engineering, art, and writing. Each week is a standalone program with no prior attendance required; please check our event calendar for each week’s activity. You do not need to register in advance to attend.

We offer a variety of online databases and eBook services that will be beneficial for homeschooling families. Most require a Willimantic Public Library card to access. We encourage residents of other towns to check with their hometown libraries to see what databases they have available. Our Family & Caregiver shelf has several books available that are centered around the homeschooling community. This shelf is located in the Youth Services Department. We welcome suggestions for titles that you would like to see here.

Our Makerspace is a wonderful place to add STEM learning and creative activities to your homeschool curriculum. Please visit our Makerspace page for more information.
