If you are a homeschooler in D.C., you qualify for an educator's library card. Homeschoolers often rely on libraries to provide texts that they need for various subjects, and because we often need the texts for ongoing projects, we need to hold on to them for longer than the average reader. With an educator's card, you can check out twice as many books as with a regular library card, and you can hold the items for 9 weeks. To apply, you need your letter of confirmation from OSSE proving that you are a homeschooler. You can go down to the library to get one, or apply online.
