Everett Public Library is also offering curbside library services — woo-hoo! Curbside service is available at the main library six days a week. Kids, join the summer reading program, log your hours and earn a free book when you hit 24 hours of reading.

At the Tacoma Public Library website, you can download printable reading logs and creative kits to use at home. (No prizes; darn that coronavirus!) Check out the events calendar to find fun online activities.

Sno-Isle Libraries serves Snohomish and Island Counties with some 23 branches from Edmonds to Oak Harbor. Like all library buildings, these remain closed, but Sno-Isle delivers a multi-faceted online summer reading program with reading logs and book recs for kids and teens, plus an online escape room activity and virtual art and reading events. Check the calendar of online events.

The best kind of takeout is “library takeout,” which you can now get from select branches in the massive Timberland Regional Library system which serves Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and surrounding towns in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Pacific and Grays Harbor Counties. (Masks are required for the contact-free holds pickup.) Sign up for the summer library program; check out the story times, STEM activities and virtual performances on the library system's YouTube channel; and browse the calendar for cool events. (Sadly, no prizes here either.) While the library buildings remain closed to the public, wifi and wifi printing are available.
