Any school educator (K – 12), preschool educator, librarian, daycare instructor or homeschool educator may apply for a teacher’s card.
We do not collect fines for overdue materials, however, you will receive notices for overdue items. If more than 10 items are overdue, more items cannot be checked out on the card.
Please note, materials that are overdue for an extended period of time may be considered lost, and teachers will be responsible for paying collection fees and/or replacement costs for lost or damaged materials.
Are you a teacher, homeschooling parent, or childcare provider who has a special theme coming up and needs a collection of books or DVDs to support your lesson? We can help! Just fill out one of the forms listed below and we’ll do our best to accommodate all requests. Please give us at least 10 days to prepare your collection.
A staff member will call you when your collection is ready for pickup. Collections will be held for seven days past that date.
Failure to pick up a teacher’s collection twice within a year may result in suspension of teacher card privileges for the remainder of the school year.
