Teacher Library Cards
Teacher Library Cards allow teachers to borrow library materials for longer, to request more reserves, and to request multiple copies of the same items. Overdue fines are not charged to Teacher Cards; replacement fees for lost or damaged items are charged. The Teacher Card is not eligible to borrow Links+ or Interlibrary Loan items.
