Recognizing: (1) that home schooling members have increased dramatically in the last decade, with Florida having the highest home schooled population in the country, (2) that home schoolers are among the heaviest users of the public library, and (3) that home schooling needs have not been fully understood, the University of South Florida School of Library and Information Science conducted a survey in 11 Florida counties with the highest numbers of home schoolers (58% of the total home schooling population of over 14,000 students) to find out how Florida libraries are meeting the challenge. Responses indicate that the biggest challenges librarians face are questions about procedure, establishing a home school, questions on curriculum, and requests for curriculum materials. Resources that a librarian can include in the library's vertical file and ways to maintain close relationships with home schooling groups are suggested. A bibliography of 105 books and articles; a list of 49 curriculum journals; information on 8 journals dedicated to home schooling; Florida home schooling statutes; a breakdown of home schoolers by county; and reference list of 73 home schooling associations are appended to this report.
