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.
Art in the Library at the Port Angeles Main Library
The summer Art in the Library show features the work of local artists Charlie Comstock, Kathy Greer, Pamela Hastings, Trevor Helgeson, Ean Henninger, Trey Hensley, Pat Herkel and the late Ken Patterson. The exhibit will be on display inside the Library from July 10 through October 8.
Art in the Library is a collaborative library/community art project featuring rotating exhibits by local artists. The program has been made possible by generous contributions from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, and also by the efforts of volunteer art coordinator Diane Williams, who schedules the artists and designs the displays. More information about Art in the Library can be found here.
