Get a Homeschool Library Card at your Local Timberland Library
TRL provides homeschool accounts to cardholders within the TRL service area, excluding non-annexed, non-contracting cities, unless the homeschooler is a paying non-resident card holder.
These accounts allow homeschoolers to access more materials for a longer check out period. To qualify, you need a current library card with a verified address, and fines below $10.
