October All Staff Training Day
All North Olympic Library System (NOLS) locations will be closed on Thursday, October 19, to allow staff to attend an in-service training day. Library branches in Clallam Bay, Forks, Port Angeles and Sequim will reopen at 10am on Friday, October 20. Due dates for checked out library material have been adjusted to prevent late fees from incurring during the closure.
Library Website and Catalog Updated
The NOLS website and catalog were upgraded on October 4. Using feedback from the public and employees, NOLS staff created a new responsive design that works just as well on a cell phone as it does on a computer. Information and resources on the site should be easier to locate and use, and the redesign effort allowed for all aspects of the site to be thoroughly reviewed and updated as needed.
In addition to improving accessibility for NOLS patrons, a major driving factor behind the upgrade was to allow NOLS to utilize new web site features, standards and practices, and implement a more efficient workflow.
Like any website, www.nols.org will continue to evolve over time. Any questions or feedback about the new website design can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy the site!

New Vehicle Rolls In at West End Libraries
With a commitment to connecting community resources to community needs, NOLS is delighted to announce the addition of a new vehicle to its NOLS-On-The-Move fleet. The fuel efficient 2017 Toyota Prius was funded in part by a generous donation from the Benjamin N. Phillips Memorial Fund. The $18,000 grant was awarded to NOLS by the Seattle Foundation in September 2016. Read more here.
