Harry Potter

Since 2016 the Library has sponsored a week-long Harry Potter Festival.  The purpose of our festival is to celebrate the books of J. K. Rowling and the world that she so masterfully creates with her words!  Teachers rename their classrooms to reflect Harry Potter locations and decorate their doors to match.  The high points of our festival are our Harry Potter dress up day and the after-school celebration in held the Library.  Our celebration includes a baking contest, taking the online Pottormore Sorting Hat quiz, Harry Potter trivia contests, board games, origami, spelling bee, coloring, and puzzles, making a Harry Potter related craft, an Azkaban Photo Booth, and calligraphy with a quill pen.

Our annual festival is just one more way that we high school teachers promote reading for enjoyment and foster an awareness of the power of literature to bring joy to our lives.
