You can also create custom reading lists to share with your patrons via email, a link, or a scannable flyer. They can use the lists to access related discussion questions, videos, audio recordings, and more.
Face-to-face training with TeachingBooks.net staff is planned for August 2017 in Abilene, Amarillo, and Odessa. Come meet them and discover online materials to engage and deepen connections to books read by homeschoolers, as well as supporting literature exploration for all patrons. For more information and to register, see https://www.tsl.texas.gov/ld/workshops/teachingbooks.
