Getting a Teacher Card
Customers with educator cards may borrow up to 30 items at once for classroom use for six weeks, but they cannot renew any material.

Teacher loan cards are a special privilege granted to educators and customers who work for institutions and facilities that educate or care for children in Gallup and McKinley County. Teacher Loan Cards are intended to benefit the children.
Teachers may borrow up to 30 items at a time for classroom use for six weeks with no renewal. Certain formats are excluded and some loan periods are not extended (ex. DVDs). Overdue fines and all other policies and restrictions apply. As a reminder, items for personal use should be checked out on personal library cards.
Teachers who are employed by an educational institution in McKinley County (religious, public, and private schools, certified home schools, licensed child-care providers, recreational leaders, student teachers, etc.) may have Teacher Loan borrowing privileges.

Teachers must apply for Teacher Loan cards in person and present any of the following items as confirmation of their eligibility:
• School ID badge
• Copy of contract or letter confirming employment
• Paystub
• Printout of online pay information
• Home school certificate
Teacher Loan Cards must be renewed and eligibility confirmed each year. Cards expire annually on August 15.
