How do I apply for an educator card? I am a teacher in the Elkhorn district and would like to apply for one. Thank You!
Thank you for asking - and thank you for teaching! We know that the ability to keep up on professional reading and borrow books for classroom use is very important, so we've got the option to create a card through your school. I've detailed the registration procedures here. Short version, get a letter from your principal authorizing you to create a card for your class and bring that along with a photo ID to any of our twelve libraries. We'll have you complete a short application form, we'll mail the card back to the school along with some information about the school's responsibilities re: the card, and you'll be good to go.
Once you've got the card set up, let me encourage you to check out our Book Club Bag program! You can reserve sets of ~20 copies of a wide range of books that come with discussion guides and other classroom resources. If you're interested in more information, take a look at this guide.
Let me know if you have any questions, either by replying here or calling 402-444-4800, and thanks again!
