Homeschool support

We are able to reserve books and other materials for you if you are homeschooling.  We are not able to give you permission to exceed the five (5) holds in the OPAC system (by agreement with member libraries this is not something we can override).  However, we can arrange to reserve items on your record as long as they are owned by Quarryville Library.

Picture of OPAC search with call number and location circled

The above listing shows OPAC’s catalog for Sharks.  The red circled item shows how you can identify that the material is owned by Quarryville Library.  The blue circled item shows the call number that is part of your request.

We are able to provide an additional 25 items per family from Quarryville Library to the 5 you reserve through the OPAC system.  Enter your request in the boxes under the ‘list’ section of the form, checking the plus sign on the right to add more items to your request.


The form also provides a place for you to request our assistance with reserving items when you might wish for us to help you.  Please describe the subjects, age groups, and possibly any prior books your child has enjoyed as a way to assist us with our recommendations.

    Please identify the items you want us to check out for you using as much detail as possible from the OPAC catalog.
  • Rather than choosing my own titles, I am requesting our Youth Services coordinator to select items for my child's homeschool unit or personal pleasure reading. Please include child's age, topic, and ideally some favorite choices that your child has previously enjoyed to better improve our recommendations.
