Harry Potter Book Read Night

Whether we first fell into the wizarding world through her written words, or were spellbound by the visuals of those words made into movies; JK Rowling has undeniably brought magic into the world. It’s been 20 years since we were first introduced to the “boy who lived,” and still we commemorate  this epic tale that begins with the line, “Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number 4, Privet Drive were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”  Between movies, theme parks, plays, and a spin-off series, Muggles and No-Majs alike are VERY aware of the magic around us.

Working our own magic, on Thursday February 2, our Lakeview Branch will host a Harry Potter Book Read Night, part of an international event,  from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Grab your books and your floo powder, and come celebrate with us. Call to reserve your spot, (309) 497-2143 and practice your swish and flick. Study hard for that History of Magic test and get your selfie with Dobby. We will have discussions, crafts, and more. Don’t miss out on this magical night!
