The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are in full swing in Pyeongchang, South Korea. After the wondrous opening ceremony on February 9, the Olympic Games run for two weeks until February 25. You can catch all types of winter sporting events, from skiing to bobsleds, from ice hockey to figure skating, and even obscure sports like skeleton or the biathlon. Just near the end of the Olympic Games, you can compete in your very own Olympic Games at the Poulsbo location of the Library.
On February 24th, the Poulsbo library will host our very own Winter Olympics competition, aptly named the Library Winter Olympics. Starting at 1 p.m. in the Community Room, you can create your own country flag (real or imaginary) and then march in an Official Opening Ceremony. Following the ceremony, you have a chance to compete in a series of bookish AND athletic competitions: javelin throw, book balancing, standing jump, cross-country skiing and a death-defying book throw! Those who compete in all events can enter a raffle for a chance to win a LEGO Chain Reactions Kit or an Ozobot Bit coding robot! Each participant will receive a special library medal to take home with them. There will even be snacks for the hungry athletes.
Bring your friends and family for a bit of friendly competition to celebrate the world coming together for these historic games.
