Welcome to Springfield’s local homeschool lending library

The SACHL Library

(Springfield Academic Curriculum Homeschool Lending Library)

 

PLEASE NOTE:
The SACHL Library is closed as we re-locate the library.
We are now in the process of finding a new home, and would greatly appreciate any leads that you might have for us. We are contacting churches and other ministry-minded organizations, as well as for-profit businesses. If you have any ideas, please email us at volunteers@sachll.org and give us whatever information you have concerning the name, location, point-of-contact, and phone number.
For the most recent updates, please continue to watch our website for new information.

Thank you,
SACHL Library Volunteers

WHAT’S AVAILABLE?

A Beka, Bob Jones, Rod & Staff, Sonlight, Konos, Saxon, Apologia, Progeny Press, and many other well-known homeschooling curriculum. Our inventory includes student readers, student textbooks, teacher’s manuals, answer keys, homeschool how-to books, videos and other support materials.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

To get started, there is a $3 card fee. After that, you pay a $1 lending fee per item. Materials that you want to renew also have a $1 per item lending fee. We are only able to accept cash or checks with proper identification. The money that we charge for membership cards and rental fees is all used for necessary library expenses, such as our online catalog, website fees, damaged or outdated inventory replacement, processing supplies for new donations and occasionally, to purchase high-demand books. All of our volunteers are homeschooling mothers that give their time to make this special project a reality.

ALL items must be returned to the SACHL Library in June; the only exception would be for those items checked out in the preceding month of May – the lending library’s Early Bird Check Out Month. All materials must be physically returned – even the books you hope to renew – before you can check out new books (renewal restrictions apply). Before coming to the library, look over the list of items that are checked out to your account. If you have misplaced your paper copy, you can view the list for your account located under the “Catalog” tab, click the “My Account” tab. Enter your last name and then the card number (located either on the bottom or on the back of your library card). Your fellow homeschool families are waiting for the items you have in your possession. If materials are not returned on time, late fees will apply. Please do not put your borrowing privileges at risk.
