Pair tea, good reads with ‘Books Libations’ program

As part of the Summer Reading Program, the North Olympic Library System’s “Books & Libations” program has been reorganized to provide participants with contact-free book suggestions and tea tasting.

Adults are encouraged to enjoy pairings at the event co-hosted by NOLS and Goodness Tea from one’s home each night, held 7-7:30 p.m. July 20-25 on Zoom or over the phone.

Registration required; register at The first 100 participants will receive a sampler of Goodness Tea products, to be picked up at a library branch (limit one per household).

Brew tea at home according to the provided instructions and tune in to the Zoom meeting. Every day of the program, participants sample one delicious tea and hear about one new book. Each book has been paired with each of the teas, with titles ranging from classics to sci-fi to literary fiction, matched in tone and intensity to herbal and chai teas and hot chocolate.

All are welcome to attend the program; interested participants not eligible for tea-tasting packs will be provided with alternate options from local grocery or specialty stores.

“Tea-go” packs are suitable for making up to two cups of tea per tea flavor. “Tea-go” pack pick-up will be coordinated as curbside service.
