NOLS warns of scam

PORT ANGELES — The North Olympic Library System officials said that emails purportedly from them that say people owe money are a scam.

Patrons have reported such emails, which are phishing attacks that do not come from NOLS and patrons should not click on any of the links in these messages, according to Noah Glaude, the library director.

Legitimate emails originate from

NOLS does not charge fines for overdue books; when it charges for a lost or damaged item, the bill is sent through the U.S. Postal Service.

A patron who needs to pay a library fee online should type into their browser and then log into their library account.

NOLS oversees public libraries in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay.
