Teacher Library Card

The Corona Public Library is pleased to offer Teacher Library Cards to support local educators in providing educational materials to their students.

There is no separate application form for the Corona Public Library Teacher Card. To receive a Teacher Card, please complete a regular library card application and request a Teacher Card status.

Teacher Cards will need to be renewed each year. Teacher Cards in good standing (less than $10 in fees) may be renewed upon expiration by providing proof of current teacher status.

Who Can Get A Teacher Library Card?

A “teacher” is any individual currently employed as a teacher, paraeducator, or library staff working in a public, private, charter, or preschool in the cities of Corona, Norco, and Eastvale. Proof of institutional identification or a pay stub from such facility is required to receive a Teacher Card.

Teacher Cards are for materials for curriculum support or classroom use. Teachers should use their regular cards to check out library materials for personal use. Additionally, Teacher Cards are for individual use only.
