A teacher card provides an 8-week loan period with no renewals. Fines are waived with the exception of lost or damaged materials.

Who is eligible

  • Any currently employed day care, preschool, or grade K - 12 teacher is eligible.
  • Parents who home school their children are also eligible when they supply a letter of verification from their district.

How to apply

  • Apply in person at the Checkout or Children’s Desks.
  • You must have your own library card from the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library or other CLEVNET library system, with fines under $10.
