The North Olympic Library System will join more than 10 million people worldwide in promoting earthquake preparedness at the libraries in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay, officials said.
Participating for the first time, library staff will lead the drill by making an announcement at 10:17 a.m. asking patrons and staff to “Drop, Cover & Hold On.”
Disaster preparedness materials specific to Clallam County also will be available.
