Hello Home Educators! We are so glad you visited this blog to find out more about the resources available through the Indianapolis Public Library. Whether you have been homeschooling for many years or just started this year, the library can provide a wealth of resources for your home education journey!
You can find many of these resources in our Homeschool Reference Binder available at all our locations. It includes a homeschooling bibliography, information on local and national organizations, and field trip ideas.
IndyPL also has a Homeschool Collection, a growing set of materials selected for homeschooling families of all ages who are interested in supplementing their current curriculum. This collection includes a wide range of subjects and focuses on curriculum and textbooks. The collection is available for in-branch browsing only at the Learning Curve at Central Library, but materials may be placed on hold at any branch or from home.
