Educator Cards allow teachers to check out items for classroom use without using personal library cards.
To be eligible for a card, educators must be employed in a licensed institutional setting in Normal or Bloomington, i.e. child care centers, preschools, public elementary schools, or private elementary schools. All Unit 5 elementary school educators are eligible for an Educator Card.
Benefit from the librarian’s collection development expertise and save time! Request an Educator Pack filled with books to supplement your units of study. Educator Packs check out for six weeks at a time. Contact Randi Sutter, Children’s Outreach Librarian, if you have questions.
Educator Packs are available during the school year. Learn more about Educator Packs.
