Want to have a fun spring break without leaving Porter County?
Families can learn about all the great things they can do close to home as the Valparaiso Public Library’s Youth Services Department presents a free program called Porter County Attractions.
The program, which is part of the library’s Spring Break Staycation Series, is being presented by Christine Livingston, assistant director of Indiana Dunes Tourism. Livingston’s presentation will focus on activities that school-aged children and their families can enjoy.
The program is 11 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, March 26 in the Youth Services Department story room on the second floor of the library, which is located at 103 Jefferson St. in Valparaiso.
The program is free, but participants must register by calling 219-462-0524, ext. 4.
Livingston’s program will touch on some of the interesting museums, attractions, nature sites and more in Porter County. In addition, Livingston will have free guides available that describe dozens of attractions that families would enjoy not only during spring break, but throughout the year. The guides feature attractions like a bison farm that people can tour, a fire museum, model railway gardens and places where kids can make their own ceramics or beaded jewelry.
