Educator Collection Policy

Last Updated

An Educator Collection is a thematic collection of age-appropriate books and materials based on a chosen subject(s). This service requires an Educators Library Card. This special library card allows educators to borrow materials for four weeks (28 days) for classroom use. It is recommended that an Educator Collection Request form be submitted at least one week prior to pick-up of materials.

Educators Library Cards require the same identity and current address verification as Adult Cards. Financial responsibility for lost or damaged items remains with the card holder.

An Educator Collection allows the patron to borrow materials as set by the following guidelines:

  • Materials included are to be made available solely for educational purposes;
  • Materials circulate for 28 days and may be renewed one time for an additional 28 days;
  • Requests may be submitted online;
  • Print request forms are available at all service desks;
  • The Educators Library Card-holder is responsible for all materials checked out to that card. Lost, damaged, and long-overdue materials will be charged according to the library’s regular schedule;
  • Arrangements can be made for delivery through our Outreach Services Department;
  • A teacher may choose to visit the library and select materials themselves;
  • Some items may not be available for the 28-day loan, such as current English Festival or Science Fair titles;
  • New fiction releases purchased within the last three (3) months may not circulate in a teacher collection.

The Library is happy to supply monthly thematic and age/reading-level appropriate collections upon request.
