Looking for food, music, crafts, and activities from countries you’ve perhaps never visited? The DeKalb Public Library is pleased to announce that we will hold “8 Countries in 1 Day” on Saturday, September 17, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This annual event has been on hold because of the pandemic since 2019. But, now we’re back full force with help from new partners and new sponsors!

This year we’re excited to welcome new sponsor Meta and to include new partner, NIU International Affairs. Our new partner, library staff, NIU’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies, and NIU’s Latino Resource Center will join together to depict the culture of countries including Malaysia, Laos, Denmark, Greece, the Czech Republic, and more.

Become a Sponsor!

Are you interested in sponsoring this event? Sponsorships start at $150.00 and help us provide high-quality crafts, decorations, and activities. Sponsors will be included in publicity materials for the event and will have their logo included on the “passports” that patrons receive at the event. We will also have a booth set up in the main lobby for sponsors to put out literature about their organization on the day of the event.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Samantha Hathaway at [email protected] or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
