Educator account
If you are a teacher in Orange, Person, Chatham, Alamance, Durham or Caswell County, we invite you to apply for a special no-fine library account. All you need is a personal library account and proof of your status as an educator. You will receive a separate library card for this account.

Present your Educator Account library card and check out up to 30 items to use in your classroom. We don’t charge fines for overdue materials, but you are responsible for lost or damaged items. You may not check out DVDs with this account. Replacement card fee is $1.00.

Loan periods
Books and other materials             21 days

Maximum loans/period
Total # of items                            30

You may renew all items 2 times, except items which are on a waiting list. You can renew items:

  • In person
  • By phone with your library card number, or 
  • Online, using your password

You may place requests on items currently on the shelf. We will notify you when items are ready for pick-up. Holds can only be checked out using the account with which the hold was placed.

There are no fines on Educator Accounts. However, after items are one month overdue, they are billed at the list cost + a $5 processing fee. All fines can be paid by cash or check at the library, or with a credit/debit card through your online account. 

School or group visits
If you’d like to bring a group to the library for a tour, please contact Kim Dunderdale via email or by phone at 919.245.2530, or fill out this form. Kim will get back with you shortly.
