Have you ever wondered what is in the soil beneath your feet when you walk across your backyard? Are you curious about all the living and nonliving things you can find in dirt? Do you want to help scientists discover more about dirt and worms? Then you're in the right place!

Bookworms is a program where YOU collect soil and worm samples from your back yard, school, or local community to give to scientists for testing and exploration. Return your samples by mail or deliver to the Indianapols Public Library. In exchange, you'll get a certificate proclaiming that you are a Community Scientist! (And while you're at the library, pick up a book or two!)

Collect worms & soil, drop off at the library, & be a community scientist! It's that simple.
