Library resources for homeschooling parents

The VIRL plans a free information session on the resources it offers.

PORT HARDY — Parents who homeschool their children are invited to attend a free information session to learn about the many resources and services available to them at the Port Hardy Library.

The workshop, Library Resources for Homeschooling Parents, will be held Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10:20-11:30 a.m.

Many parents in the Port Hardy and North Island area homeschool their children. The Vancouver Island Regional Library has many resources and services that can assist you with this teaching.

“We have so many resources available to parents, and all they need to access them is a library card” says Indira Wickremasinghe, Community Support Technician at Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL).

Parents will learn how to get the most out of the library catalogue, about the many different newspaper and magazine databases, and how to request books through interlibrary loan.

This program is free, but pre-registration is required. Please call the Port Hardy Library at 250-949-6661 to reserve your seat.
