May craft kits celebrate Harry Potter

Posted to Off the Beaten Shelf on May 3, 2021 at 10:13 AM by Elizabeth Land

Harry Potter craft kits will be available at both libraries beginning May 3.

Craft kits return to the library this month! With kits for both elementary schoolers and middle/high schoolers, we've got something for every Harry Potter fan. But you don't have to be a wizard to create magic. Just grab one of our kits by stopping by the Youth Services Department at either branch beginning today, May 3. Please note that the Middle/High School kits contain small pieces and is not appropriate for young wizards. Kits will be available while supplies last. For more information, call Tabb Library at 757-890-5110 or call Yorktown Library at 757-890-3236. 

Not everyone has read the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, but most people at least recognize the iconic name. The 7-novel series has spawned movies, a Broadway play and even its own section in the Universal Studios theme park. But it all started with the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It's never too late to experience the series. The York County Public Library carries copies of every book in the series in both physical, digital and audio formats. Just visit our online catalog to reserve your copy today.
