Teacher Borrowing Privileges

How to Apply

For Preschool/Daycare Teachers:

Not-for-profit preschool and day care centers that are not home-based and are within the city limits of Elmhurst are entitled to Elmhurst Public Library preschool borrowing privileges. Teacher borrowing privileges allow your teachers to check out Elmhurst Public Library materials for their classroom. The director of your preschool must sign an agreement with the Library and attach a list of names of teachers who are authorized to take out materials on behalf of the preschool. The teacher list is updated yearly or as staff are added or retire. The preschool accepts responsibility for replacement costs for materials that are not returned.

For Kindergarten through High School

Every teacher in the Elmhurst school system is entitled to teacher borrowing privileges. Teacher borrowing privileges allow you to check out Elmhurst Public Library materials for your classroom. Teacher’s borrowing privileges are automatically renewed each year when we receive the current school rosters. If you are a new teacher or never had teacher borrowing privileges, contact your school librarian.

Note: You need your school I.D. to pick up materials in person.
