This activity is for the birds.
The North Olympic Library System will offer Build a Birdhouse events at local libraries this summer.
Sessions are slated at 2 p.m. today at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
In the case of inclement weather, the Sequim event will be moved to Sequim Middle School, 301 W. Hendrickson Road.
Library staff and volunteers lead this hands-on building workshop, and participants will walk away with a completed birdhouse. An adult must accompany children younger than 8.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own hammers (if they have them), but the library will have some hammers available for use.
Lumber for the program was provided by Angeles Millwork and Hartnagel Building Supply, and the Country Woodwright cut lumber to create more than 300 kits.
The event is part of the North Olympic Library System’s 2019 Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories.”
This summertime program encourages children to keep reading during the summer break from school, features a reading challenge with fabulous prizes and several events for all ages.
The program runs through Aug. 17.
