Family Storytime @ North Olympic Library System Forks Branch
May 18 @ 10:30 am

Story time nols Forks

Family Storytime

This storytime series will take place every Friday at 10:30am

November 3 through May 18.

Storytimes at the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) feature stories, fingerplays, music, and plenty of movement and fun. Studies show that children who are read to before the age of five develop essential pre-reading skills, supporting later success in school. Activities such as talking, reading, playing, and singing all play an important role in early childhood development, which is why they are included in Family Storytime. These activities support skill development and encourage children to interact with their caregivers and peers in a fun, literacy-rich environment. After each session, parents and caregivers will have an opportunity to visit and swap information about parenting resources in the community.

Additional Information

The Forks Branch Library is located at 171 Forks Avenue South. For more information about storytimes and other programs for youth, visit www.nols.org, call 360.374.6402, or email Youth@nols.org.

May 18 @ 7:00 pm

Dance lessons

Dance lessons will resume on Friday, January 19th.

They are held at the Forks Congregational Church’s Fellowship Hall and begin at 7:00PM.

The lessons are for people of all skill levels, but the main emphasis is on ensuring that beginning dancers can join us on any Friday, and feel comfortable.

Each week begins with a review of the previous week’s lessons.

The instructors, Jane and Terry Heilman, are very skilled and patient, and the other dancers are very welcoming to newcomers. We love to dance, and we never bite. Dancers frequently change partners, therefore having a partner is not required. The lessons are free. Some people make a small donation for the instructors gas expenses, but this is not required.

Please join us on Friday. We are friendly, and we laugh a lot.

No experience is necessary, and no partner is necessary.
