While readers love discovering new eBooks and
audiobooks in their favorite genres, that’s not all
you can read. Reading magazines is a way to keep
up with current events, follow a favorite sports
team, learn new things or, as a guilty pleasure,
skim through the latest gossip. The Library’s
eMagazines are a great source of information and
entertainment, and there’s no subscription fee.
Readers can enjoy multiple digital magazines
through Overdrive or by using the Libby app. Using
your library card, just click to open and read on
your smartphone, tablet, or computer. eMagazines

A Harry Potter
Celebration for the Family
More than 20 years ago, the Harry Potter series
took the world by storm. J.K. Rowling’s creation
rejuvenated the popularity of children’s
books and became a crossover hit adored
by children and adults. The books combine
mystery and fantasy with great character
development, and it is the only series at
the Library that is shelved in the children,
teen, and adult areas.
Harry Potter and his
pals not only reinvigorated
the world of children’s
literature, but also the movie
industry, prompting studios to search
the children’s bestseller lists looking for the next Harry Potter phenomenon.
It has also been lucrative for collectors. Last October a pristine first edition of
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone sold in a telephone bidding war at a
British auction for $57,000.
The Library will honor this modern day classic and its impact on literature
and culture with a Harry Potter Week Celebration, February 2-8, when
both libraries will host a variety of drop-in activities in the children’s area for
all ages. The evening of February 4, adult fans can test their knowledge at a
Harry Potter Trivia Night at Main Library. On February 6, young witches
and wizards in grades K-6 are invited for a Hogwarts Sorting Ceremony and
refreshments at Main Library.
