More About the Summer Reading Program
The theme for the 2019 Summer Reading Program is A Universe of Stories. This summertime celebration, which encourages children to keep reading during the summer break from school, features a reading challenge with fabulous prizes, and a multitude of events for all ages. Research shows that children who do not read during the summer experience “summer slide” and may lose up to a month of the instructional knowledge they gained during the previous school year. Library summer reading programs have been shown to help alleviate the “summer slide” by providing access to books, enrichment activities, and encouraging young people to keep reading. The 2019 Summer Reading Program runs      June 15 through August 17.

Virtual Reality NOLS Summer Reading Program 2019 @ Forks Branch Library
Jun 21 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

As part of the North Olympic Library System’s annual Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories, check out Virtual Reality at the Library! Adults and teens 13 and older can experience immersive and interactive 360° video using Oculus Rift and Go headsets. Explore America’s National Parks, The Body, Mars Odyssey, Star Chart, Everest, and more! Virtual Reality (VR) sessions will be held at the Forks Branch Library on Friday, June 21 and July 5 from 12-4pm, and the Clallam Bay Branch Library on Saturday, July 13 from 1-4pm. These drop-in VR experiences will be about 15-20 minutes per user and are on a first-come, first-served basis with a waiting list if needed.
Using VR has potential safety concerns; participants must be 13 years or older (no exceptions). Adult participants must sign a release waiver, and participants aged 13 to 17 must have a parent signed release waiver. Waivers are available to download at nols.org/virtual-reality, or can be picked up at NOLS branches.
Virtual Reality programming is part of a partnership with the Washington State Library, Oculus, and the University of Washington Information School to bring educational opportunities to library communities around the state. Additional funding for this program comes from the Friends of the Library groups.

Free Workshop: Composting in the Home & Community Garden @ Forks Community Garden Founders Way
Jun 22 @ 12:00 pm

Free Workshop: Composting in the Home & Community Garden

Join us at the Forks Community Garden on Saturday, June 22 at noon where Clallam County Waste Reduction Coordinator, Megan Davis will provide information to help home gardeners integrate composting into any size garden or space as well as discuss how to maintain and benefit from composting at the community garden.

She will provide an introduction to composting and its many benefits. She will also share space-saving techniques such as grow heaps, trench composting, and worm bins, for recycling yard and food waste right back into gardening areas, capturing valuable organic matter and nutrients that plants need for good growing.

Attendees may bring a lunch. The presentations are free and open to the public. For questions, call 360-417-2000 ext 2026

Forks Community Garden is located off Founders Way, behind the Bogachiel Clinic.
