Weekend fun: Winter walk, science, soup and more

Winter Walk: Take a guided walk on Saturday at Camano Island State Park. Meet at the picnic shelter near the boat ramp at 9:50 a.m. The walk includes two short climbs but is otherwise mostly level. The trail is 2.6 miles long with views of Saratoga Passage and Elger Bay. It also passes through a beautiful fern grotto and ravine. Rain or shine — walks are only canceled for extreme wind or snow. Wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Get more info here.

E-easy: If you’re still trying to figure out that new Kindle, tablet or other e-book reader, fear not. The Snohomish Library is offering a session Saturday on borrowing free e-books from the Sno-Isle Libraries. Bring your library card, email information and your charged device. Call 360-568-2898 or go to www.sno-isle.org to register for the 9 to 9:45 a.m. session. You can also schedule an appointment for one-on-one instruction. The library is at 311 Maple Ave., Snohomish.

Resolve: Prepare to succeed at your New Year’s resolutions. Life coach Debbie Lacy offers the help you need to succeed from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Mukilteo Library, 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd. Lacy offers methods you can use on your own, journaling exercises and a discussion.
