A teacher who wishes to check out materials for use in the classroom for an extended loan period must register for a Teacher Loan Library Card at any Portage County library location. No fines are charged for materials checked out on Teacher Loan but fees for notices will be charged against the card.
Materials (books and children's audio tapes) are checked out for six weeks with no renewals. Materials such as new books, science fair books, holiday materials and audiovisual materials other than children's audiotapes may not be checked out on Teacher Loan.
The staff reserves the right to limit quantities, especially if the loan will deplete a subject area or an assignment is currently running in more than one school.
Staff will gather materials for a Teacher Loan if a teacher provides at least 48 hours advanced notice and there are sufficient staff available to gather the materials.
