Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Summer Reading Program looks a little different than past years, with events being virtual, but still includes a reading challenge with incentives to earn a special NOLS T-shirt and chances to win awesome grand prizes. Visit the Summer Reading Program page to learn all about it! For additional activities that encourage reading, writing, creating, and connecting, be sure to follow North Olympic Library System on Facebook and Instagram.
