Nooksack Tribal Library Virtual Summer Program

By Charise Wenzl, Tribal Library Manager

The Education Department is offering fun rewards for taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge. Turn in your reading log each week to receive a token for your charm bracelet.

To access digital material, you can go to WCLS.org (Whatcom County Library System) and sign up for a free library card, if you haven’t already. Under Digital Content, find Washington Anytime Library and the free Libby app, or find it on the Libby app on the app store. After you sign in with your library card on the Libby app, you will have access to over 45,000 free book titles to download, or borrow online. You can choose the eBook option to download the book for reading or you can choose the audio version and have the book read to you.

Guardians will fill out the reading log for the child. Ask the child what the book was about and if they would recommend it to a peer. If your child is an emerging reader, please get involved by reading to them, point to words and pictures, and ask questions about the characters and setting as you are reading.

All K through 7th graders registered with the Nooksack Youth Program are eligible.

Turn in your reading log every week at the neighborhood drop spot so we can track your progress. Your logs can be handed in to the youth staff at your housing site, or you can have your parent scan and email it to me.

For every 3 hours of reading you will earn a token for your charm bracelet.
