Welcome to Springfield’s local homeschool lending library

The SACHL Library

(Springfield Academic Curriculum Homeschool Lending Library)

1740 S. Glenstone Suite L Room 4
 Springfield, Missouri




We will be closed December-February. We will open by appointment for patrons who need to get into the library to return materials or check out items. Contact us through Facebook or through the “Contact Us” tab on this website.





On a sad note, we are sorry to share with you the news that our Board President, Annette Way, has lost her beloved husband, Reese, in a tragic road accident. Reese was a devoted homeschooling husband and father, and a true friend of the SACHL Library. Your prayers for Annette, their eight children, and all of their extended family are deeply appreciated.


SHEM will be accepting monetary donations for the Way family to assist them with their needs in the coming days. Here is a link if you would like to make a donation. Our heart, thoughts and prayers are with this family. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XPM8KXPB6D8VY

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.


To get started, there is a yearly $5 membership fee which expires May 31st each year. There is 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. All the money that we charge for yearly membership and rental fees is used for necessary library expenses, such as rent, our online catalog, website fees, damaged or outdated inventory replacement, processing supplies for new donations and occasionally, to purchase high-demand books.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.

2014-2015 school year checkouts must be returned to the SACHL Library in June 2015. 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 will be 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.
