Are you ready to discover lost worlds?

This summer, we encourage kids to discover –

Underwater worlds, alternate universes, epic adventures, mythical creatures and so much more await discovery in this summer’s SRC program, Lost Worlds — what will you uncover?

The 2015 Summer Reading Club: Lost Worlds will officially run from

We hope the Summer Reading Club will help you  discover great authors and illustrators of picture books, junior and young adult fiction and non-fiction.
