Furness, a children and family services librarian at the Webster Public Library, seeks to break stereotypes about homeschoolers and to educate librarians about some of the major reasons parents choose to homeschool their children. She gives librarians the information and tools they need to develop policies, programs, and services that support homeschoolers in their communities. The first half of the book explores philosophies and trends in homeschooling and places them in context, giving librarians enough knowledge to understand homeschoolers' needs, along with resources and a vocabulary that will allow them to approach homeschoolers with some confidence. The second half of the book deals specifically with building library programs and services for the homeschooling population. The book includes many profiles of homeschooled students and their parents, along with writers, thinkers, librarians, and others active in the homeschooling movement.
