News & Announcements
Virtual Story Times
Next week, Washoe County Library will begin offering virtual story times featuring some of your favorite Washoe County Library Story Time stars. These will take place every day at 11 am. They will continue to be presented until our physical library branches reopen.
In order to view the videos, you will need to join our Virtual Story Time group on Facebook. In addition to daily presentations from our talented staff, we will feature other Story Times and resources for reading together as a family.
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.
