Used curriculum sale

July 9th, 2012

Book sale coming!

If you think you missed them all, think again, one of the best in the area takes place in July, this year on the 28th.

The Johnsburg Library’s Homeschool Resource Center is once again hosting their book sale and open house.

Free Admission to a Public Garden

May 8th, 2012

Found out about a great opportunity coming up this week from Kristi Boss of the Homeschool Resource Center (www.fofchomeschool.org)

Click on the Get Coupon button on their site and you can get a coupon for free admission to a number of public gardens. You do need to give your name, email, zip code, pick your garden, and indicate the number in your party. The coupon is good for 2 admissions, but the site says to print as many as you need for your group.

In Illinois, included in the list are:

  • Cantigny
  • Chicago Botanic Garden
  • Elmhurst College Arboretum
  • Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden
  • Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens
  • Rockford Park District
  • The Morton Arboretum
  • University of Illinois Arboretum

More all across the country, so share with your in and out of state friends as well. 🙂

The weather here in Chicago is supposed to be gorgeous on Friday so grab the sunscreen and a picnic lunch, and enjoy a field trip!
