Chicago Ridge Library Teacher Loan Cards are available to certified teachers who teach in School District 127 ½, and early childhood education day care centers in Chicago Ridge.
A Teacher Loan Card will enable you to check out materials which can be used within the classroom, for the benefit of the school and its students. The card is not meant to be used as a personal library card. The materials are for in-class use only and should not be taken home by the students.
Teacher Loan Cards will be valid for one school year. Cards can be renewed at the beginning of each school year.
Materials can be checked out from Chicago Ridge Public Library for three (3) weeks. They can be renewed.
We are here to serve—give us a call, email us, or stop by. It’s always “Teacher Time” at the Chicago Ridge Public Library!
