The Haywood County Public Library has opened to the public a unique library collection to help meet the recreational and educational needs of children that are schooled at home.

This special collection contains a variety of formats including fiction, biographies, history, language arts, mathematics and science materials. Funding to start the collection was provided by federal funds via a Library Science and Technology Act (LSTA) grant awarded to HCPL in June 2011.

The collection is located at the Canton branch library on Pennsylvania Avenue  in Canton. A home school patron card with specific guidelines will be made available for home schooled applicants upon request. Patrons using the home school collection card will have access to the special collection with longer checkout periods.

For more information, please call the Canton library at 828.648.2924.
