Centuries ago, two powerful houses struggled for control of the Kingdom of Libraria. Eventually, the people of Libraria left the kingdom for the outer realms, spreading through the lands and settling in 5 nearby nearby realms.
You are aligned with one of the those houses!
House Shadow & Light
House Mist & Fury
Only 1 house can reign!
Can you conquer the outer realms and make your house the Rulers of Kingdom Libraria ?
When you register for Teen Summer Reading, you will be sorted into a house team. You’ll earn points for your house by reading books and by participating in challenges. These points will help your house conquer the kingdom. See below for more information or download your copy of the rules:Battle for the Library Rules Booklet
