Get Out and Explore Olympic!
Olympic National Park and the North Olympic Library System are teaming up to help local families explore the spectacular national park in our own backyard.
Explore Olympic! daypacks are available for check out
at any NOLS branch. Daypacks are filled with discovery tools for exploring the park, including trail and field guides, binoculars and reading materials for kids. Families who check out a pack will receive a seven-day entrance to Olympic National Park thanks to a generous donation from Washington’s National Park Fund.
NOLS and PUD partner to help you save energy
The Library and the PUD are jointly sponsoring a program at each NOLS branch where you can learn how to use a watt detector to save on your energy bills as well as more ideas for reducing your household energy consumption. Kill-a-Watt™ Energy Detector Toolkits are available for checkout. Click here for more information about this program.

The C.O.A.S.T. program, or Creating Opportunities for After School Thinking, is federally funded by the Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center. Cape Flattery School District is one of 11 schools nation-wide to receive grant money used to tutor students in core subjects -- using music, art and culture -- helping them meet state and local academic achievement standards. Partners in the program include Makah Cultural and Research Center, Makah Employment and Training Department, and the North Olympic Library System, which oversees the public libraries in Clallam Bay, Forks, Port Angeles and Sequim. After the initial five-year grant period, the school district will look for ways to sustain the program.
