North Valleys Library Manager Jonnica Bowen, with WCHD contact tracing trainers, Luis and Cynthia.
We appreciate your patience as we work to reopen our libraries. Only five of our locations are currently offering in-person services, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t working hard for our community. Many of our staff are participating in a COVID-19 contact tracing program, an effort led by the Washoe County School District and the Washoe County Health District. This project aims to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and help get kids back in school.
You might think of time travel as a subject exclusive to science fiction and fantasy, but books featuring time travel, loops, and slips come in all kinds of packages: adventure, historical fiction, romance, social commentary, mystery, humor, and more.
These resources can help your child's education continue even when the schools are closed. Regardless of grade level, you will find useful research databases covering a wide variety of subjects, as well as sites like World Book and Explora that provide activities and lesson plans.
Computers help us learn, play, work, and communicate. We use them in many areas of our lives. Since computers can’t think for themselves, people called programmers must tell them what to do in code, a language of instructions that computers understand. Try this fun “coding unplugged” activity and learn some of the basics of coding.

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.
