Children’s Day @ Forks Branch Library
Apr 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

On Tuesday, April 30, the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) will join hundreds of libraries across the nation in celebration of El Día de los Niños (Children’s Day).  The Forks Branch Library celebration will be held from 4-5pm and feature games, music, treats, and lots of fun! Children who attend will receive a free book in honor of the holiday.

Día, is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. Día is also known as El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day). Día happens year-round, since sharing good books with children should take place every day, but on April 30, libraries, community partners, and families have extra special celebrations to mark the year. NOLS has a wide range of books for all ages available in Spanish. In addition, patrons may request books in other languages from libraries around the country through the interlibrary loan service.

Additional Information This program is generously funded by the Friends of the Forks Library.  The Forks Branch Library is located at 171 Forks Avenue South. For more information about this and other programs for youth, visit www.nols.org, call 360.374.6402, or email Youth@nols.org.

Casper Babypants Concert @ Forks Branch Library

Casper Babypants Concert

A perennial favorite, Caspar Babypants returns to the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) for a 2019 library concert tour! Caspar Babypants will be performing on Thursday, May 2 at the Sequim Boys and Girls Club at 10:30am, and then at the Port Angeles Main Library at 6:30pm. Continuing the fun, there will be another show at the Forks Branch Library on Friday, May 3 at 10:30am.
Seattle native, Caspar Babypants (aka Chris Ballew of the band The Presidents of the United States of America) makes family-friendly music about interesting topics like a bubble that doesn’t follow the crowd, a butterfly driving a truck, googly eyes, and many more. On his website, babypantsmusic.com, Ballew has also written short background stories for his songs, providing interesting and entertaining insight into his source of creative ideas. According to Will James on Geek Dad, “Not only do both of my kids enjoy listening to his music, but my wife and I can listen to it over and over without wanting to stick things in our ears!”
