Living Learning Libraries
Special Support for Classical Conversations Families -- Easy Enrichment and Engagement!
For those doing Classical Conversations (CC), we can make your job much easier by providing wondrous support materials for your children--of the very highest quality, and hand-curated--without even adding a stop to your weekly routine! You needn't even visit the library! Instead, the take-home book-bins can be delivered right to your weekly CC meetings (and then swapped between the library members in your group). Just join the library online, and let us know your group leader (while slots are still available).
Working with local CC leaders, we have pored over the CC themes--in history, math, science, art, etc.--and pre-packed top-notch living books on these topics for each CC week. This has been very popular, and families say the students' summary CC reports deeply reflect what they've vicariously through the living books. So, they're a terrific aid to deepening the memory and content work...in an exciting and encouraging way!
NOTE: Due to high cost of acquiring top-flight books for many CC groups, we need 3-4 library-member families per CC group to make the service feasible. So, bring your CC friends for a tour of the library, to see in person how "living books" carry the children even more deeply into learning...easily and enjoyably for you & them!
Also, this same high cost of development means CC-support-tote users commit to either the 8-month or 12-month option, for each schoolyear CC-totes are used. (Actual cost is much higher yet.) You'll see the power of this lifelong investment!
I was fortunate enough to receive your weekly book bins to correspond with Classical Conversations this past year. They were such an incredible asset to our homeschool week.
Your books provide JOY in learning. CC places the pegs so we can fit all that we read into place.
The CC-support book bins seemed like a great way to add to what we were doing and I didn't have to do the work of selecting and gathering! It felt like a win-win. Then, when prepping for evaluation, I made a list of what we read. Just for fun. Of what I tracked, we had enjoyed about 140 books together, 90% from the Living Library. I was floored! I had no idea it was so many. So, I couldn't have known last summer what a gift our membership to LLL would be. The work you put into those bins (and all the other books we checked out) are such a blessing. It is her education. And mine. Because we are always learning. Your life-giving work makes a difference…
