Get a Library Card

In response to COVID-19, Washoe County Library System is introducing a new Instant Digital Card so that Washoe County residents can take advantage of the library's digital collection while our branches are closed. This new card will work as soon as you register and will remain active until the libraries reopen, when you will be able to convert it to a permanent account.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your new library card number and password/PIN will display on the screen as soon as you complete the registration process. Please copy this information into another document, write it down, or take a photo before you leave that page. You will need your card number to access most of the library's online reseources. Your password will be a random, complex string of characters, which you may wish to immediately change when you first log in. If you already registered and need help getting your account information, please contact us for assistance.

By registering for an Instant Digital Card, you agree to abide by all Washoe County Library policies.

Our new digital card is working for most resources, but authentication for LearningExpress Library is not working correctly. We are working to get this resolved as soon as we can.
