The North Olympic Library System (NOLS) oversees the public libraries in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay.

The annual Clallam County Reads is a community-wide shared reading experience.

The program offers free, educational and community-building events and programs during October and November related to the official selection, which this year is “The Soul of an Octopus” by Sy Montgomery.

A limited supply of free copies of the book are available at each of the NOLS libraries.

The book is also available for check-out in such other formats as audio and downloadable versions.
