National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. This year's theme highlights how libraries are offering virtual services and digital content their communities need now more than ever.
Celebrate National Library Week by sharing your love for our virtual library services on social media. Please post about an ebook, audiobook, virtual story time, or other way your library has made a difference while you've been social distancing at home and get the chance to win a $100 Visa gift card from the American Library Association.
Post your entries to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with hashtags #ThankYouLibraries and #StayHomeForNevada. Please be sure to tag the library as well (Facebook/Instagram: @washoecountylibrary; Twitter: @washoelibrary).
Math stories in a format that combines animation, narration, and sound to create a compelling and enticing story book for students of all ages. The books are all accompanied by supplementary materials such as lesson plans, educational games, plus quizzes in order to test and track progress.
Do you need help with homework? Interact with live tutors in real time using a virtual, whiteboard classroom. Subjects include math, science, reading/writing, social studies, PSAT/SAT, ACT, AP, and state standardized tests. Available daily 1:00-10:00 pm PST, except holidays. Tutors are also available in Spanish.
Log in with your library card to access resume templates, live interview practice and coaching, career assessments, and resume review. Includes the Adult Learning Center, where you can build your writing and math skills, learn office software, and prepare for high school equivalency or US citizenship tests.
News & Announcements
Virtual Story Times
Washoe County Library System is expanding our virtual story time offerings. Story times will now be posted twice a day, at 11 am and 4 pm. You can watch the recordings of these story times whenever you want.
We love donations. But during this temporary closure, Washoe County Library and the Friends of Washoe County Library will be unable to accept them.
Please hold on to any items you would like to donate until Washoe County Libraries reopen. Do not leave donations at library branches.
Digital Library Cards
In response to increasing demand for our online offerings, we have created an easy new way for you to access our digital resources.
If you do not have a Washoe County Library account (or if you have misplaced your card), you can now visit our website and quickly acquire a digital library card, which you can use to check out ebooks and audiobooks, take online courses, and much more.
