Parenting Matters Foundation and the First Teacher Program will bring back the popular BLOCK Fest™ program to the Forks Branch Library of the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) on Friday, March 8 at 10:30am.
BLOCK Fest™ is a research-based block play program geared towards children from 8 months to 8 years with their caregivers.

BLOCK Fest™ in Clallam County was initially supported by a generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the Parenting Matters Foundation of Sequim, Washington.
