Teacher Library Cards


Teachers from schools located within the St. Charles Library District boundaries are eligible for teacher accounts with permission from the school’s principal. The principal of the school must complete a borrowing agreement with both the teacher’s and principal’s signatures before materials may be checked out for classroom use. Contact the Circulation Department at 630-584-0076 ext. 0 for additional information.
