NCW - Welcome Back. We are so excited by the enthusiastic start to our Summer Library Program. More people  signed up in the first week of the program than in all of last summer — by far. Attendance at our in-person and virtual programs has been phenomenal. Thank you for spending your summer with us! If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late! Sign up online or in-person at your community library to receive an activity pack and be eligible for prize drawings at the end of the summer.

Join us at the Library. All of our libraries now offer regular in-person programs  for all ages. Relax with Zentangle at Chelan. What is Zentangle? Learn how to create beautiful non-representational images using simple and purposeful marks with this fun, easy-to-learn, and meditative method. Zentangle is not simply doodling.

New Bookmobile Stops. Our two community bookmobiles have added new stops this summer to bring library services to more people in our library district. In addition to their usual stops, they are now visiting the Malaga Market and Valley Hi in Chelan County, Crescent Bar and Colockum Ridge Golf Course in Grant County, Brewster Boys & Girls Club and Nespelem in Okanogan County, and Inchelium and Keller in Ferry County.

These mobile libraries bring all the materials you find in our branch libraries — books, DVDs, music, craft kits, and more. You can also pick up your holds, drop off returns, connect to free Wi-Fi, and sign up for the Summer Library Program. Do you know of an isolated rural community in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Okanogan, or Ferry County that would benefit from a monthly bookmobile visit? Please contact us at bookmobiles@ncwlibraries.org.

Explore Science With Us.
