Hey Harry Potter fans, did you hear the news?

Here's the video of her announcement.  The visuals are amazing!

Until then, you can get ready for the final Harry Potter film out July 15 by catching up with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 movie at the Library!  Join us on Wednesday, July 6 at 4 pm in the Activity Room.  We'll have snacks AND we'll be playing movie bingo!
