Family Storytime

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.

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.

The Poetic Apothecary: Poems for Healing and Comfort @ Forks Branch Library
Apr 19 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

The Poetic Apothecary: Poems for Healing and Comfort

Forks Branch Library Friday, April 19 6-8pm

Just as a cup of tea can settle and sooth us, the right poem at the right time can be a powerful sustaining remedy.

Poet and performer Judith Adams explores poetry’s restorative powers by reciting and exploring poems that help us understand grief, fear, sadness, loss, and much more. By sharing her love of poetry, Adams encourages audiences to share poems that have deeply touched their lives and discusses how writing poetry can be a potent medicine for us all.

This event is sponsored by Humanities Washington’s Speakers Bureau program. Find out more about our free, public events across Washington State at www.humanities.org.

Free River Float @ Forks Outfitters Parking Lot
Apr 20 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Free River Float

In coordination with this years’ Rainfest, the Olympic Peninsula Guides’ Association (OPGA) will be putting on a Free Community River Float event on Saturday, April 20th.

Although our guides typically spend their days catching fish, the OPGA want to share with our community the amazing scenic experience created by our stunning rivers as they flow out of the heart of the Olympic National Park.

Beginning at 9 a.m., shuttles (sponsored by the Forks Chamber of Commerce ) will be leaving from the Forks Thriftway parking lot for a 2-hour scenic float on one of our local rivers. Shuttles will leave frequently throughout the day, so come early and get signed up. The event will be first-come first-serve, but we will try and accommodate as many people as we can. We will go later than 2:00pm if there is enough demand.

Please bring warm clothing, rain jackets, sunscreen and your camera! Minimum age is 6 years old (with parent). Life jackets for adults will be provided. We will have some children’s life vests, but please feel free to bring one that fits your child if you have it.

Beginning at noon, we will also have root beer floats available (sponsored by Thriftway). All are welcome, even if you can’t join us on a river float.

Come join us for a day of fun and experience our area rivers from the viewpoint of a boat or raft!

If you have any questions please contact Ravae at 360-485-3334 or info@olympicpeninsulaguidesassociation.com
