The Schoolcraft Community Library serves three service areas: the Village of Schoolcraft, Schoolcraft Township and Prairie Ronde Township.
Patrons second grade and older may be issued library cards. Library cards for patrons in these service areas are current for two years from the date of receipt.
Library Cards & Circulation Policies
A patron wishing to use the Schoolcraft Community Library will complete and sign a registration form to request a library card. Signing the registration form indicates that the patron agrees to obey all policies, rules and regulations of the Schoolcraft Community Library and to pay all fines for damages or loss of library materials that are checked out by the patron.
In the case of a minor(s) (under the age of sixteen) who desire to have a personal library card, a parent or guardian must sign the registration form making the parent or guardian responsible for all library materials checked out or used by the minor(s). A registration form must be filled out to obtain a library card and the registration form must be reviewed by a staff member before a library card is issued.
Patrons from the Village of Schoolcraft and Schoolcraft Township are eligible for reciprocal borrowing with both Kalamazoo Library and Portage District Library, as the patrons in these two service areas pay one mil in library taxes.
Patrons from Prairie Ronde Township are not eligible for reciprocal borrowing as they only pay .5 mil in library taxes.
Patrons who live in Texas Township or outside of the service areas of the Village of Schoolcraft, Schoolcraft Township or Prairie Ronde Township may apply for a non-resident card. Our non-resident fees are:
$50 per family per year (use of Schoolcraft Library)
All teachers teaching in the Schoolcraft Community Schools (SCS) may borrow materials from the Schoolcraft Community Library regardless of whether they live in the Library’s service area or not. Teachers living outside the service area may be issued a special educator card valid for one year as long as they teach in the SCS.
Educator cards are to be used principally during the school year. Teachers are subject to the same membership rules as other patrons. All SCS teacher’s requests for library materials will be filled from the library shelves so that some material on the subject still remains in the library.
