“When in Doubt, Go to the Library”: Top Ten “Harry Potter” Library Week Items

We’ve been suggesting lists and lists of books as part of our FART challenge each month, and we hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we’ve loved doing it. However, this month, in conjunction with National Library Week, we’ve also provided some of our recommendations for fun apparel and gifts with Ron’s quote referencing erudite Hermione, “When in doubt, go to the library” (CS 255).  National Library Week this year (April 4-10, 2021) has the theme “Welcome to your library.” The idea is that the library is more than just the four walls of a building. What better way to expand on the exciting new worlds that libraries and books can give us than by exploring Hogwarts? Take a look at our list – we’re sure you’ll love our suggestions.

I discovered Harry Potter a little late in the game (high school) but have loved it ever since. My favorite characters are Harry, Hermione, and Luna, and my favorite book in the series is Deathly Hallows. As a librarian, I’m typical Ravenclaw, who also loves history, traveling and writing.
