Joyful Noise brings music to libraries

Thanks to a donation and partnership with Joyful Noise Music in Sequim, the North Olympic Library System now has instruments available for checkout.

All four NOLS branches host a ukulele and strumstick to check out. Forks and Port Angeles also have guitars available, and Port Angeles, Sequim and Clallam Bay host violins. Each instrument checks out for three weeks and must be returned to the customer service desk at the branch where it was checked out from. For those that are percussively-minded, NOLS’ Rhythm Buckets contain a variety of fun noise makers that can be checked out from any branch, too.

For more information about this and other non-traditional items at your library, visit, call the library at 360.417.8500, or email
