All of the Adventures will take place at the Library Service Center, 100 W. Indiana Ave., Chesterton, from 2-3 p.m. Registration for the Adventures is not necessary. Families of participants are also welcome to attend.

Join Hiu Hua and others for a celebration of China at the first Friday Adventure on June 20. Enjoy games, music, dancing, and more.

Peru will be the focus of the June 27 Friday Adventure. On July 11, children will enjoy a live video call to caretakers at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee during the program about Zimbabwe. The final Friday Adventure, July 18, will highlight Poland.

Mexico will be celebrated at the end of the summer reading party. Family Fiesta will take place at Thomas Centennial Park on Saturday, July 26, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Enjoy the fiesta and then browse the European Market. The park is at the corner of Broadway and Calumet in downtown Chesterton.
