ConnectEd - WCLS

The Lynden School District and Whatcom County Library System have formed a partnership called “ConnectED” to provide K-12 students access to the best educational resources and learning materials in our libraries and on the internet.

Through the partnership, Lynden School District student IDs will be used as WCLS library card numbers, allowing students to:

  Borrow 2 physical items at a time, such as books, CDs or DVDs, from any WCLS location

  Borrow 5 digital items at a time, such as eBooks or audio eBooks

  Incur no overdue fines for items classified for children and teens

  Use computers with filtered internet access at any of the library locations

  Access other educational resources, such as online encyclopedias, using the Internet from school or home

  Reserve public library books using school ID account, and have public library books delivered to school library for student pick-up


Lynden students will automatically be enrolled unless opted out. To opt out of participation, please see the following letter and opt-out form:
