Teachers get an extended loan period to facilitate the use of library materials with their class.

  • Borrow up to 50 items
  • Keep items for up to 16 weeks

To qualify for teacher loans, you must obtain two library cards, one for personal use and one Teacher Card, and be a resident of Los Angeles County. You can register online for a library card for personal use. To qualify for a Teacher Card, you must submit identification showing your current status as a teacher (grades K-12), homeschool educator, adult school instructor, teacher-librarian, or school library aide. Remember to submit proof of teaching status with this application to expedite the process.

A Teacher Card allows you to borrow a total of 50 items, with some restrictions, pending librarian approval. Most items checked out on a Teacher Card (except DVDs, videos, and music) are loaned for 16 weeks with no renewals. Teachers will be responsible for fees incurred for lost or damaged items.

Applications are processed within a few days, at which time you will be emailed your new Teacher Card number.
