We are excited to finally be able to welcome you back to our libraries.You can once again browse the library collections in person, check out books without having to first place a hold online, and use public computers and printers.
We are still not back to full operations. A few of our branches (Senior Center, Duncan/Traner, and Verdi) will remain closed a while longer, and our meeting rooms are still unavailable. Also, we are continuing to ask that all visitors over the age of two wear face coverings when visiting the library.
As we expand our services back to full capacity, we will continue to offer a wide array of online events and resources. Check our reopening page to see updates on our services, and check our library hours page to see when your favorite branch is open.
It is time for the Summer Reading Challenge! Join us for a variety of activities and information on how to participate in our Summer Reading Challenge. We will show you how to track your reading time, earn badges and prizes, and more.
If you suffer from anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety disorders affect one in five American adults and one in four American children age 13 to 18, according to the American Anxiety and Depression Association. In honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, we have complied a list of titles for understanding and coping with anxiety.
Digital magazines, with something for readers of every age, including children and teens. Read magazines online or download to your computer, tablet, or phone using the Libby app. Magazines are always available and never expire. You will need to create an account using your Washoe County Library card the first time you visit.
Parents and caregivers, tune in for book recommendations, early literacy tips, and fun bounces, rhymes, and songs for our littlest learners. All of our virtual events are shared on Facebook and are archived on YouTube.
The Friends of Washoe County Library is a member-supported 501(c)(3) Nevada non-profit organization dedicated to advocating, fundraising, and providing support for the Washoe County Library System.
You can support Friends of Washoe County Library through Amazon Smile. Visit Amazon Smile and select Friends of Washoe County Library. It works just like the regular Amazon website, except a portion of your purchase price will be donated to FWCL.
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.
