Homeschool Resources

Calvert Library is your homeschool headquarters! Your library provides books and videos, educational software, premium online resources, interlibrary loan materialsmeeting rooms, and more.

We have over 49 premium online resources on a wide range of subjects.  Many of our premium online resources include lesson plans for different subjects and ages.  Our catalog contains the materials available at the Calvert, St. Mary's, and Charles County libraries, all available through interlibrary loan. 

If not available in the tri-county region, we can check the state and outside the state for materials to use in educating your children through our MARINA system. 

For every age and every subject, Calvert librarians are happy to help you find what you need for your planning, lessons and projects. All of our resources are free of charge with a library card!  For more information, or to schedule a library tour, call or visit your local library location.  We are here to help!
