Teacher Library Cards

Fine-free library cards are available to teachers! Items checked out on these cards do not accumulate fines. However, replacement costs are the responsibility of the school district if items are lost or damaged. Please click here for a teacher card application, or contact the library for more information: 608-588-2276 or jpassant [at] springgreenlibrary.org (subject: Teacher%20Card%20Inquiry) (jpassant[at]springgreenlibrary[dot]org).
