Dress like Harry Potter character, act like a pirate

Children and teens are invited to come to any Fauquier County Public Library dressed as a favorite Harry Potter character on Saturday, July 21. A small prize will be given out to those in costume while supplies last. July 21 is the release date of the new J.K. Rowling book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Place a hold on a library copy of the book.


By the way, although you'd have to be living under a rock not to know this, the latest Harry Potter movie (the fifth Harry Potter book), Order of the Phoenix, is breaking box office records. MTV online has a good story on the premier (some interesting links for fans) or see what Michael White has to say about this weekend's news.

The library's event is part of the library's summer reading program activities.

Ahoy Mateys!
Everyone is invited to come aboard for a pirate party being hosting by all Fauquier public libraries on Monday, July 23. Wear your best pirate gear for stories, games, and seaworthy surprises. The party begins at:
