A Homeschool Tote is a Librarian-selected collection of youth books and other library materials relating to one subject. Totes are designed to supplement textbooks and enrich curriculum. It is our goal that through this service, learning will be enhanced and both teacher and students will become more aware of what the public library has to offer. Click here to request a Tote.
Homeschool parents may obtain a separate library card to check out Madison Public Library materials intended for classroom use. This card will be kept on file at the library.
The loan period on this type of card is 6 weeks with up to 5 additional renewals if the material is not requested by someone else. This means homeschool parents could potentially use library materials in their classrooms for over 140 days! These items are not subject to overdue fines, but card holders will be billed for lost or damaged items.
