There are a ton of great books that come highly recommended and find themselves on the countless “100 Picturebooks to Read before Kindergarten” lists.

HARRY POTTER PARTY UPDATE!
It has been an exciting weekend here at the Library with our Ministry Representatives leaving items for the party.
On Saturday Miss Bridget came in to find a set of Robes, a Witch’s hat (which when she put it on made her yell ‘GRYFFINDOR!’ thus leading us to believe that the Ministry has enchanted it to help us with Sorting), some of Professor Trelawney’s scarves, a couple of Ministry posters and the IDs of the Ministry Representatives who will be here tomorrow night.
This morning goodies from Honeydukes where left, a small cauldron, two wands (oops ) and the sign to Platform 9 3/4.
Both mornings the Library had been enchanted to play music from the Wireless Wizarding Network so Miss Bridget has been dancing to Celestina Warbeck (Mrs. Weasley’s favorite singer! A video of her is above preforming a song that she recorded, the proceeds of which went to St. Mungos.)
We hope that everyone is as excited as we are for the party tomorrow night!

With the new season (and the new Doctor!) starting tonight don’t forget that you can catch up with past Doctors here at the Library!Allons-y!
