Educator Cards

This card helps teachers enhance their classroom with a steady supply of books and materials in a wide range of subjects and reading levels.  

If an independent school district has a school inside the Fort Worth city border, the entire staff of that district is eligible for Educator Cards. Library staff will be able to assist in determining eligibility and explaining expiration dates. 

With this card, educators may:

  • Check out up to 100 items at a time for up to 42 days.
  • That includes books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, CDs and magazines.
  • They may reserve up to 25 items and there are no fines on overdue materials.
  • Individual cardholders are responsible for paying to replace lost or damaged items.
