The Clallam Bay Branch of the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) will host Dino Dig with the Burke Museum on Thursday, September 20 from 12-2pm. Children will take a journey through geologic time as they examine real fossils, rocks, and minerals, as well as cast replicas of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals and plants. There will be opportunities to unearth fossils in dig pits, learn about the work of paleontologists and geologists, and imagine the amazing life that once inhabited the planet.
This story time series will take place Friday September 14 and every Friday through May 31, 2019
Family Storytimes feature stories, music, rhymes, and plenty of movement and fun! Activities such as talking, reading, playing, and singing all play an important role in early childhood development. After each session, parents and caregivers will have an opportunity to visit and swap information about parenting resources in the community.
PAWS to Read
Watch your child discover the joy of reading with a little help from a furry friend at the North Olympic Library System’s (NOLS) Forks Branch Library. Canine pal Tally and her trainer Sherry Schaaf from Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy Dog Club. This is for children 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.
Free Entrance to Olympic National Park
The National Park Service announced today that the public will be invited to experience all national parks, including Olympic National Park, without entrance fees, on four days in 2018.
The 2018 entrance fee-free days are:
- January 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- April 21: First Day of National Park Week
- September 22: National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
“National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2018.”
