Harry Potter Celebration

Don't miss it!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came to Tomball Library

Today the magical world of Harry Potter came to Tomball Community Library. Two live screech owls appeared and were discussed in the Children’s Department; Platform 93/4 emerged and people made snapshots of themselves in front of it; staff wore Hogwarts costumes, and the entire first book of the Harry Potter series was read. Although it may not be appropriate to blow our own horns, the staff involved did a magically wonderful job!

Teen Tuesday – Tabletop Quidditch June 14th @ 3:00 PM [11+]


    We visit the wizarding world of Harry Potter first in our Summer of Fandoms. All wizards love quidditch. Since we muggles haven’t got the magic touch for flying in the air, we got to play a miniaturized version of the game.

      Join us in the Library Community Room on June 14th at 3 PM at the Parker Williams Branch to see if you have the luck of the Irish or the quickness of Krum.

Book Hunters in Brief #79: Harry Potter's First Publication Anniversary

A lot of us grew up with Harry Potter--literally. That was part J.K. Rowling's genius; her character's aged in a fairly good facsimile of real time right along with her target audience. Another part of her genius was not just the originality and charm of the world she imagined, but it's completeness. We stepped into the world of Harry Potter and it was both strange and oddly familiar--much like the world we live in--only more full of possibilities, more morally well-defined, more fun.
