Harry Potter Costume Party and Movie
November 8, 2002

To celebrate the November 15 release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter fans gathered at the Library for a special party in honor of everyone’s favorite boy wizard.  Kids of all ages came dressed as their favorite character from the Harry Potter series to enjoy crafts, Hogwart snacks, Harry Potter trivia, a costume contest, and a special showing of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on the big screen in the Petty Auditorium.  Just look at the crowd!
