Today more than a million students are being educated at home. Because of this growing trend, public librarians are increasingly being called upon to serve the needs of homeschooled students. This book provides guidance in this area, first reviewing the developmental and social needs of teens, then demonstrating how those can be met in the public library setting. It includes a wealth of ideas for adapting every facet of your library service to meet the needs of this growing population, from developing a homeschool collection and expanding services and special programs to promoting these offerings. Extensive resource lists conclude the volume.
