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.

The Adults of Harry Potter

It’s to Alan Rickman’s credit that I became a huge fan of Harry Potter. Really. Oh, I’d been mildly curious about the phenomenon of the books about the boy wizard. But it wasn’t until I read that Alan Rickman was going to be in the first movie that I actually picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and read it.
