Reading is certainly an important part, if not the foundation, of education. Especially when it comes to history and science, we often use our local library to check out books on the subject of study. It’s also a great way to save a little money while homeschooling.
I try to plan out our Classical Conversations schedule so I know about a week ahead if I need to ask our library to order a book from another one so we have it in time. When you work and homeschool, planning is often key in this situation.
If you haven’t tried it already- use your local library.
