NOLS hosts virtual reading groups in August

Local library reading groups are going virtual this August.

The North Olympic Library System (NOLS) has moved its four monthly Book Discussion Groups to Zoom meetings this month.

Registration through is required for each event to get the Zoom meeting information, but all are welcome to participate.

To register or see the full schedule, visit or call your local NOLS branch.

Paperback copies of the upcoming book selections will be available for pick up any time after the current month’s discussion, during curbside service hours at the Sequim Library or Port Angeles Library (see location notes below) on a first-come, first-served basis.

Copies in other formats such as large print, book on CD and eBook may also be available to request through the NOLS catalog at
