PAWS to Read @ Forks Branch Library
Sep 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

PAWS to Read

Watch your child discover the joy of reading with a little help from a furry friend at the North Olympic Library System’s (NOLS) Forks Branch Library. Canine pal Tally and her trainer Sherry Schaaf from Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy Dog Club. This is for children of all ages.

Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve. Children are sometimes reluctant to read aloud because they feel unsure or self-conscious. Reading to a dog or other pet provides a non-judgmental audience and encourages children to read with confidence.

Free Entrance to Olympic National Park

 The National Park Service announced today that the public will be invited to experience all national parks, including Olympic National Park, without entrance fees, on four days in 2018.

The 2018 entrance fee-free days are:

  • January 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • April 21: First Day of National Park Week
  • September 22: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11: Veterans Day

“National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2018.”

NOLS: No-knead to Sourdough @ NOLS: The Forks Branch Library
Sep 28 @ 4:00 pm

NOLS: No-knead to Sourdough

Friday September 28, 2018 4pm  Forks Library

Victoria Redhead Miller, author of From No-knead to Sourdough: A Simpler Approach to Handmade Bread will present on making your own sourdough starter at the Forks North Olympic Library System (NOLS) in September.

Sourdough starter, activated by wild yeast, can be used for making a lot more than just loaf breads and pizza.  Miller will show that it’s easier to use and keep than you might think.  She will provide instruction on making, maintaining, and baking with sourdough in your own kitchen.  Register now to go home with your very own jar of sourdough starter!

Victoria Redhed Miller lives on a 40-acre off-the-grid farm outside of Sequim.  In her newest book, she blends her own journey toward self-reliance with her fascination for traditional homesteading skills and love of good food.  Miller’s previous books include Craft Distilling and Pure Poultry.

Space is limited and registration is required to attend.  Register at www.nols.org or by contacting your local NOLS branch. Participants are invited to bring their own pint-sized jars with a wide mouth and a lid; jars will be provided if you don’t have one.  Miller will have copies of her books for sale and signing after each presentation.
