Online Libraries!

Salaamu alaykum

Living overseas in a 3rd world country sometimes your resources are very limited. So what do you do when you are educating your children and need access to a library?

In 2005 our family made hijra to Cairo, Egypt and since being here I have learned that the Internet and printer are my now new found best friends since again most educational resources are either way to expensive or non- existent. This makes homeschooling in a foreign country most difficult when you feel like you have no where to turn. But thanks to todays technology you are able to do as you please all virtually and there is no excuses. The only draw back I have found is that doing it this way since in my mind going to a library is more "normal" our kids will see this as the norm in there mind or worlds. But its still the same thing and when ever we have the means to do so we take full advantage of visiting actual libraries.  

There are many online libraries that you can use for your homeschooling needs and its not just catered to homeschoolers overseas. I have been home and had no transportation and needed to get access to a library for my children and this site came in handy as always and I hope it does the same for you.

Here is a list of online libraries
