Burke Museum Backyard Scientist:  A Science Kit for Preschoolers and their Families

Through the end of 2017, you can check out a backpack geared towards preschoolers to encourage exploration of the natural world. Designed by the Burke Museum, each Backyard Scientist kit contains a magnifying lens, specimen viewer, collection boxes, big net, binoculars, ideas for nature walk activities, a book, a feather, rock, shell, and an insect. Funded through a Thrive Washington Grant and the Burke Museum, the backpacks are perfect to explore the outdoors with your young one without leaving your own backyard!

To checkout a kit, stop by your nearest NOLS branch or place a hold in the online catalog.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1000-book goal in three years and provide their children with essential early literacy skills.

How to get started
To register in the program, visit your nearest NOLS branch library anytime throughout the year and pick up a helpful reading log to track your progress. Participation is free. To cheer you along, NOLS will give away a small prize for every 100 books you and your child read. Earn a Library tote bag when you’ve read 500 books, and a celebratory book at 1,000!

For more information, send an email to or contact your friendly library staff.

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is made possible through generous support from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, the Friends of the Clallam Bay Library, the Friends of Sequim Library, and the Friends of the Forks Library.
