The goal of a teacher card is to get books into the hands of children and to support teachers that are doing just that. The Library has instituted more forgiving and generous circulation rules to help fit the special needs of teachers.
While billable for lost items, teacher cards are not charged for overdue items. Loan periods are longer and hold limits are greater than normal cards. Please be aware however that the teacher card is to be used for curriculum-related materials, not for personal reading or viewing interests. Problems with delayed return of materials or other abuses can result in cancellation of the card by the library.
Circulation Rules for Teacher Cards:
|Overdue Threshold||50 items|
|Charge Limit||150 items|
|Hold Limit||50 items|
|Billable for lost material?||YES|
|Overdue Fine Exempt?||YES|
|Loan Period||28 days with one renewal|
When contacted, staff will try to accommodate teachers who need books pulled or need help finding materials.
