MARTIN, Tenn. – Staff members and librarians at the University of Tennessee at Martin’s Paul Meek Library hope to eliminate some of the fear and questioning, and provide answers to many home-schooling questions.

The library is offering a special orientation night at 7 p.m., Sept. 24, for homeschooling parents that will highlight the important features the library provides for those involved in education. Highlighted areas include an explanation and overview of the library’s textbook section, the juvenile books collection, the Rogers Media Center’s special resources and an interactive session on government resources that are helpful in the learning process.

The night will begin with an informative session in the media center’s Room 118 and will then move on to individual sessions related to each of the highlighted topics. Those attending the event will be divided up into groups with each group attending all four sessions. The sessions will be set up to be hands-on and questions will be addressed along the way.

In addition, packets of informative materials will be supplied to those in attendance and an RSVP by Sept. 20 will guarantee this information is provided. When calling or emailing an RSVP, the library asks that the grade level be included so sessions can be appropriately geared toward the specific grade levels represented.

As this is an informative meeting for teachers and parents only, the library respectfully asks that children be given the night off to stay at home and take a break from learning.

For more information or to reserve a place at the orientation, contact library staff members Cindy Gaylord at (731) 881-7078 or or Sara Rachels at (731) 881-7083 or
