USING LIBBY AND ConnectED

The Bellingham Public Library has partnered with the Bellingham Public Schools known as ConnectED.  This gives students access to great educational resources and learning materials in our libraries and on the internet. Each student gets a connectED “library card” and this give them access to physical and digital books.

We encourage all students to access the digital and audio book collection by downloading the Libby App on their computers.

Please let us know if you need help accessing Libby or using your ConnectEd account.

READING NEWSPAPERS ONLINE with Connect Ed

You can also use your ConnectEd account to access online digital newspapers via the Public Library.
