Institution cards:

Institution cards are special Library cards offered to individuals who are employed at schools, day-care centers, and other non-profit organizations. Institution cards have a higher borrowing limit than other Library cards. The institution agrees to take responsibility for any Library material the employee uses in support of their work. Contact the Library to request an institution card for your school or classroom.
