Family Storytime

After each session, parents and caregivers will have an opportunity to visit and swap information about parenting resources in the community.

NOLS Poetry Walks @ Olympic National Park Trails
Apr 1 @ 6:00 am

Four self guided trails connecting poetry & nature in Olympic National Park

April 1 – May 31

This spring the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) is teaming up with Olympic National Park to offer a sixth season of Poetry Walks. This year’s program will begin April 1 and continue through May 31, and features inspiring poetry along four dazzling trails in Olympic National Park. The Library and Olympic hope the playful combination of nature and art will encourage residents and visitors to get out and be active, and remind them of two great local resources that are always available to explore. During Poetry Walks, poems will be placed on signs along the following trails in Olympic National Park: the Hall of Mosses Trail, the Living Forest Trail, the Madison Creek Falls Trail, and the Peabody Creek Trail. With the exception of the Hall of Mosses Trail, access to these trails is free. Due to the current closure and ongoing improvements along the Spruce Railroad Trail, poems will not be placed there this year.
