Homeschool CreateSpace & Game Day

Fri, Sep 8th

10:00am - 12:15pm


Homeschool families are invited to join us at the library for a fun event of building, socializing & structured game play with children ages 5 to 10 and their siblings. Registration is not required. This program is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This program is being offered as a result of a grant Desert Foothills Library wrote to provide more resources for gifted learners, including homeschool families.

While you are here, peruse the library's homeschool collection and check out materials you may need to supplement your child's education.
