Just learned of a few programs coming in September to the Garfield Ridge Branch Library, 6348 S. Archer. For details, phone the library at (312) 747-6094. My thanks to Children's Library Associate Patti Tyznik for sharing this information.

Homeschool Neighbors: Thursday, September 8, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. 

Join us for an informative discussion for new homeschooling families and experienced homeschooling families who need advice on teaching at home. We will have parents speaking on how they got started homeschooling and what co-ops are.  Learn about the library's resources; getting your kids a library card to use online databases, request materials, etc; programming events and more. The library is a great tool for homeschooling families.  Refreshments will be provided as well as an activity for kids. 

• Chess! Wednesdays in September from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. (For children ages 5-13 years).
