Teacher Card

SHELTER-IN-PLACE UPDATE 3/22/20: Due to Dallas County’s shelter-in-place order, Irving libraries will suspend all IPL Express curbside and drive-up window services in addition to being closed to visitors. At this time, Irving residents and Irving ISD students should take advantage of online options to obtain a card. Nonresidents who would like to sign up for an account may purchase an e-card to access online services, which can be converted to a card to check out physical materials when the library reopens.

UPDATE 3/18/20: In response to the COVID-19 situation, beginning March 18, 2020, temporary policy changes have been enacted that increase loan limits and create more convenient membership options for new and regular cardholders. These changes are reflected below:
