Explore Olympic! packs are coming to library near you

Beginning Friday, the North Olympic Library System and Olympic National Park’s project will come to a head with their recent collaboration to provide children’s daypacks for check out from NOLS.

The packs are filled with a variety of educational and discovery tools to help local families experience Olympic National Park.

Intended to encourage the exploration of the park’s natural resources and make it more affordable for interested families to visit the park, each pack is equipped with binoculars, reading material, activities, field and trail guides and a seven-day entrance pass to the park.

Multiple packs have been designed for the program and will be stationed throughout the NOLS system. The Sequim Library will have one resident pack, but a hold system will be available.

“We are thrilled to see these packs made available to our North Olympic neighbors and very grateful to the library and our partners for making it possible,” ONP superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said.

The Explore Olympic! pack program is operated and managed by NOLS, but funded by ONP partners including the Washington National Park Fund and Discover Your Northwest.

For more information on the program, call the Sequim Library at 683-1161.
