Harry Potter Book Night 2019

Karin, January 25 2019

“The stories we love best do live in us forever.”
– J.K. Rowling

The first Thursday in February is coming up, which can only mean one thing: our libraries are turning yellow and black, blue and bronze, red and gold and green and silver, and our libraries seem to have that little extra magic within them.
There might not be moving stairs, owls or quidditch – but what we do have are Harry Potter themed activities taking place!
Whether you’re a massive Potter fan, never heard of the Harry Potter series or are somewhere in between we’re sure there’ll be something magical for the whole family in our libraries.

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
― Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
