As part of the annual Summer Reading Program, the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) is providing a series of fun and educational virtual events for youths on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.

Check out or follow NOLS on Facebook, for more fun virtual events for children, teens, and adults happening this summer.

Upcoming events on the schedule, which kicked off June 30, includes:

• July 14 on Facebook: “Tiny Science”: An entertaining and educational session with enthusiastic entomologist Jen Paur, a dynamic speaker who makes bugs super cool and takes away the creep factor.

• July 28 on Facebook: “Underwater Adventure”: Learn about local marine creatures from Feiro Marine Life Center staff.

Summer Reading Program

The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Program is “Imagine Your Story.” This summertime celebration, which encourages children to keep reading during the summer break from school, features a reading challenge with fabulous prizes, and a multitude of virtual events for all ages.

Library summer reading programs have been shown to help alleviate the “summer slide” by providing access to books, enrichment activities, and encouraging young people to keep reading. The 2020 Summer Reading Program runs through Aug. 15.

The Summer Reading Program is supported by the Friends of the Library at all four NOLS libraries.
