15. Services for Educators

  • A Teacher Card provides a six-week loan period with no renewals for print materials and non-fiction audio-visual materials, excluding any new materials. Due to limits in our collection, seasonal materials well be limited to 2 items per card. No items from another library can be checked out on a Teacher Card. To obtain a Teacher Card, a patron must have a regular Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library Card. Teacher Cards are available to teachers Pre-K through grade 12 and homeschool parents. A teacher must show a staff ID badge or other proof of employment to obtain a Teacher Card.
