Online fundraiser set for family

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to assist with funeral and related expenses for the family of a mother and daughter who died in a vehicle collision along U.S. Highway 101 near Sequim on Dec. 26.

The post-Christmas crash claimed April Schondelmeyer, age 40 of Port Ludlow and her daughter Lyllian Moore, 12, of Port Ludlow. Schondelmeyer’s eldest daughter, Shoshanna Schondelmeyer will turn 16 this month.

The GoFundMe campaign has a goal of raising $5,000.

Library offers laptops for check-out

The North Olympic Library System now has laptop computers available for checkout. Laptops are available for a two-hour loan period, for use on library property. The lending laptops automatically connect to NOLS Wi-Fi and do not connect to any other network, NOLS officials said.

The laptops are available to NOLS cardholders on a first-come, first-served basis during library curbside hours. Signing up for a library card is free and can be done during Curbside Service hours.

“The library boosted its free Wi-Fi and made it available 24/7 as soon as the pandemic forced the closure of our facilities, but we realize there are a lot of people who don’t have devices to utilize the free Wi-Fi,” NOLS library director Noah Glaude said.

NOLS also began offering a free curbside printing service in December.
