Harry Potter

Teen Advisory Group & Dumbledore's Army

     

Teens! What programs do you want to attend at the library? Anime Club? Dungeons & Dragons Group? Crafts, 3D Design, Robotics, something else? If you’re a teen and interested in earning volunteer hours at the library by helping with programs, then the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is the place to be! Join TAG and meet up with other teens to work together to help plan teen programs, decorate the teen room, and make buttons for the monthly button battles. This month’s meeting will be on Monday, September 10, from 4:45-5:45 PM. We meet in the Teen Game Room.

Also this week, are you a fan of Harry Potter? Then join Dumbledore's Army, a the new monthly program that focuses on all things Harry Potter. Each month we solemnly swear to discuss favorite HP books and movies while either crafting, playing games, watching a movie, or anything else we think up relating to the Wizarding World. First meeting will meet on Thursday, September 13, from 6:15-7:15 PM in the Room of Requirement (Teen Room).

For teens and tweens in grades 6-12.

Book Hunters in Brief #136: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The stage play, Harry Potter & the Cursed Child, opens tomorrow in London's West End. It could be a disaster. But it won't be. Here are three reasons why:

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.

My Journey Beta Testing for Pottermore

On Monday morning @ approximately 9:30 am, I discovered in my personal email something I had been waiting a month for. My Pottermore welcome email.  I excitedly jumped into the experience as one of the first million people invited to be Beta testers and began my journey.

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.
