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!
