About Us

Hi There!  I’m Karen Duffy, owner of Journey Books in Eagle River, AK.  I am a homeschooling mother of six children, and have homeschooled my children for over ten years. We have lived here in Eagle River for over five years.  I am hopeful that this humble shop can become a place for local homeschooling moms to sell and purchase curriculum and materials, and share experiences and ideas about the resources available to us.

My focus is on curriculum consignment, though I also have new items sometimes available for sale, and I hope to feature some handmade/ homemade (non-homeschooling) items from other small family ventures in the future.

Homeschooling is a journey.  We choose different paths, and we may have different goals, but we all learn along the way.  Journey Books hopes to help you find joy in your journey.

Currently, I am accepting curriculum, manipulatives, and educational puzzles or games for consignment.  Please schedule an appointment to come by with your items and meet with me.  I look forward to seeing you!
