Fantastic Beasts in the Library

Just in time for the November 16th release of "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", Harry Potter fans, magizoologists, wizards, witches, and muggles alike are invited to test their skill in a Fantastic Beasts scavenger hunt.  Can you find the beasts hiding inside Crosby Branch Library?  When you find one, bring it to the front desk and get entered in a prize drawing.  There are 21 beasts in all, and the more you find, the more entries you earn.  Winners will be selected by random drawing on Monday, December 3rd.  For more information, visit us at the library or call 832-927-7790.  Good luck!
