We love this store!!! It has a huge selection of homeschooling curriculum as well as a great section of reading books, cool toys and games. I always find great deals as their items are all consigned and sold at a fraction of retail prices. The store is very organized and neat so even though they have thousands of books you can find exactly what you are looking for easily. There is even a train and lego table for kids to play with. I have shopped here for many years (think they have been open over 10) and the staff is always wonderful and friendly! The owner is often there working as well as some other Moms that have home schooled as well.
I have read a not very positive review so I decided to write one since this store is not accurately represented by them. Unfortunately it seems like people are more likely to leave reviews when they arent happy. It also seems like there are some people that dont have their expectations met everywhere they go and that reflects more on them rather than the businesses and people who have to deal with them.
If you have homeschool books, kids books, educational type items to buy or need to sell, this store is the best! They are consignment so you dont get ripped off receiving only pennies on the spot for your stuff but they sell it for a fair price and you get half when it sells. I usually shop with my store credit all the time so I never manage to get a check because I keeping finding great stuff every time I go. My kids always ask if we can stop here when we are out running errands.

Unfortunately I had the same experience as other negative review poster. Two ladies chatting away behind the desk. Twice I asked for help. Both responses were not with a good attitude. Disappointing and not what you'd expect from this kind of store.

I would like to respond to the negative (one star) comment about the Homeschool Room. The Homeschool Room is a wonderful store that I could spend hours in. However, it is small and it is family run. They do not have a lot of employees. At the time the lady called to inquire about the book, they very well could have been swamped (lots of customers showed up at one time, or there was a special event such as music lessons or a Spanish class going on). Showing up 30 minutes later to an almost empty store does not prove they weren't swamped earlier in the day. As far as asking for help- I have been pleasantly asked if I needed help before, but usually I walk straight up to the desk, which is in the center of the store, and say, "do you have thus and such". There are no employees wandering around to check on people like at Barnes and Nobles. There are usually two employees in the whole store, and both of them are usually behind the desk to be ready at the register to check people out or answer inquiries. In fact, the second employee is often one of the owners children, who may or may not be legally "working". It sounds like the other reviewer was already upset about wasting her time driving 30 minutes, which was her choice.

Not impressed!!! Called to inquire about a book to see if they had it before I drove from Harrisburg to see if they had it or not. The salesperson stated that they were swamped and that she would try and check on it sometime that day and call me back today or tomorrow. Decided I better just make the trip there- When I arrived - (30 minutes later) the two salespeople were just at the front desk smiling and talking to each other and there were only about 2 other people in the whole building!!! I waited from someone to help me and finally had to approach them from help--- Once I finally got help I found the book I inquired about, only to find out that it truly was the wrong edition!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

The Homeschool room is the bomb! It is the one stop shop for all your homeschool books at great prices.
I also do nicely selling my used curriculum and books there as well.
The store is clean, shopper friendly, and the staff is all very helpful. The books are quality in condition and content.
Whether you are a teenager, homeschooler, or teacher, or avid reader, looking for books for a deal, this is the place to go.
I cannot recommend it highly enough!

This is a used homeschool curriculum store. It is a wonderful place to either sell your used curriculum or find materials for you to use. Even if you don't homeschool, they have a vast colleciton of reading material that may be of interest to your child. I highly recommend checking them out.
