February 2nd, 2017 will see the third annual Harry Potter Book Night celebrated throughout the world and both Macon County Public Library and Jackson County Public Library are getting ready to host an unforgettable "Share the Magic" Harry Potter Party. The fun kicks off at 6:00 PM in both Sylva and Franklin.
On Harry Potter Book Night: Share the Magic, the library will share the wonder of J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable stories and, most excitingly, introduce the next generation of readers to the unparalleled magic of Harry Potter. Young wizards, witches and Muggles will be treated to an evening of games, activities, magic tricks and light refreshments.
At Macon County Public Library, it all begins when the Sorting Hat decides who will be in which house and then the Hogwarts students will rotate through magical classes. We’ll be transforming the library into Hogwarts, as well as serving up snacks inspired by some of the scrumptious wizard foods in the books. Everyone is also encouraged to dress up as a Harry Potter book character for our costume contest.
Cristen Dando, director of youth services at Macon County Public Library says, “We are so excited to join up with schools, libraries, bookshops and community centres throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and beyond, to celebrate the third annual Harry Potter Book Night. We have always been fans of the Harry Potter books because they get so many children excited about reading.”
