Educator Services

Connect with your Local Children's Specialist

Children's Specialists are library staff dedicated to youth. They can suggest titles, gather materials, arrange class visits, and visit schools. You can find them at all library locations.

Educator Status Library Card

An educator status card lets you check out most library materials without accruing overdue fines. Educator status library card registrations are good for one year and need to be re-registered each August. Though you do not accrue fines except on DVDs and videos, please respect the library due dates.

Educator Request for Materials

Let library staff gather books and materials for your class! Fill out an educator request form, and then fax the form to us or bring it in to a library.

Bring Your Class to the Library

Take a tour of the library, tailored to you and your students' needs. Contact your library to arrange a date and time for your visit.

Library Cards for Your Students

Register your students for library cards.
