Partnership with WCLS

The Ferndale 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, FSD 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

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