See the joy of reading come to life as fourth-graders from ten Clallam County Schools participate in a trivia style competition for a grand prize trophy.
Battle of the Books is a year-long collaborative project between NOLS and ten schools from around Clallam County. For five months, library staff visited fourth-grade classrooms at schools in Port Angeles, Joyce, Forks, and Sequim, and facilitated book club discussions for students.
As a culmination to the program, teams of students from each school will compete for a trophy on March 20, at 6:30pm at the Port Angeles Main Library. All participating students received free copies of the books read throughout the year and a t-shirt featuring original artwork by a participating student.
The Battle of the Books program is made possible through generous support from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, the Friends of Sequim Library, and the Friends of the Forks Library.

Watch your child discover the joy of reading with a little help from some furry friends at the Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks libraries. Dogs and trainers from Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy Dog Club will be inside the library listening to young readers of all ages.
Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve. Children are sometimes reluctant to read aloud because they feel unsure or self-conscious. Reading to a dog or other pet provides a non-judgmental audience and encourages children to read with confidence.
