Homeschool Survey For The Public Library

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Deciding what services to offer homeschooling families will depend upon your community, your library, staff, and resources. One of the best places to begin is by surveying patrons who homeschool about what they would like from library services.

One afternoon a family came to the library that was going to begin homeschooling. The mother share the recommendation of a friend, "Before you buy anything go to the public library. They have great resources." I rejoiced at her words. This spurred me to put together a survey focused on the needs of homeschooling patrons. One benefit of the survey was to help parents think about resources available from the library that they never thought about.

Rather than re-inventing the wheel it is always better to adapt one that already works. Here is a basic survey geared toward homeschooling patrons to determine needs and desires. Adapt it as needed.
