Help us kick off our science-themed summer reading program by exploring some marine biology! First, meet Deanna LaSusa-Hotchner, a volunteer interpreter and diver at John G. Shedd Aquarium.

Then, swim on down to the Wilton Room to make a sharktastic craft! Please visit or call the Youth Services Desk at 847.356.7711 to register for one of the eight program times available.
