Santa Clara City Library is committed to supporting children with learning and educational development, and now offers Teacher Library Cards to give educators more convenient access to materials used in the classroom. Cards are available for K-12 certificated teachers, as well as licensed preschool educators who work or live in Santa Clara.
Separate cards for classroom and personal materials.
Longer circulation period—six weeks with 5 renewals (unless item has been requested by another patron).
Increased item limit for borrowing (up to 100 items).
Increased item hold limit (up to 25 items).
No fines for overdue items.
All overdue materials must be returned before new materials can be checked out.
Cardholder is responsible for lost or damaged materials.
Card is to be used for classroom related materials only. No adult fiction, best-sellers, or entertainment DVDs will be
circulated on this card.
Continued failure to return materials charged on a Teacher’s Card may result in the revocation of the card.
Librarians reserve the right to restrict “high-demand” materials (i.e. state or missions books).
To get a Teacher Library Card, you must apply in person at any of our three Santa Clara City Library branches.
