CHESTERTON | Girls in grades 5-7 are invited to mark their calendars for a new program/club just for them that will debut this summer.

The Sisterhood of Traveling is a series of afternoon/evening sessions where attendees will learn about different countries from women who will talk about their native land. Attendance is free. Registration is not necessary, but girls who are interested in attending may give their names and phone numbers to library staff at the Thomas Library Children’s desk, 200 W. Indiana Ave.

A different country will be presented from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, July 15, 22 and 29. Carol Walsh will guide participants in a related craft during sessions from 6 to 7 p.m. July 10 and 24. Attendees will meet in the Bertha Wood meeting room at Thomas Library except for the final July session. On July 29, participants will meet at the Library Service Center, 100 W. Indiana Ave.

A different volunteer presenter will come each week and talk about their country and answer questions. Countries to be covered in July include Australia, Poland, Peru, South America, Puerto Rico, and Scotland. Patrons will learn about the culture including traditions, music, food, fashions and school. They will also learn what daily life is like for young women in each of the highlighted countries and what to expect if traveling there. A question and answer session will follow each presentation.
