Accio Book Drive & Harry Potter Events in May

Accio Book Drive & Harry Potter Events in May
The teens from Dobby's Favorite Sock, the East Brunswick Public Library's Harry Potter Alliance Chapter, in partnership with New Jersey's Bridge of Books Foundation, will be collecting books at the library throughout the month of May. The group will be collecting new and very gently used books for all ages to give to those in need this summer.

Bridge of Books provides an ongoing source of books to under-served children throughout New Jersey in order to support the development of literacy skills and encourage a love of reading. Look for collection sites in the children's department and at our local East Brunswick public schools.  The HPA will also be hosting several events this month to encourage donations.  

Read to Wizards
Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m.

The library will be invaded by wizards! Wizards are coming from all over the magical world in the hopes that you will read to them.  This program is open to all school age children and we encourage you to bring your book donation for the Accio Book Drive to the event.

Harry Potter Trivia
Monday, May 16 at 7 p.m.

Come to the library to test your Harry Potter knowledge!  We're bringing back the popular Harry Potter Trivia Night for all ages this year.  All are welcome, but make sure you have read all the books to avoid any spoilers.

"A pirate and a princess are each searching for hidden treasure. The princess stays one step ahead of the pirate with every clue. But how can she get him out of the way long enough to dive for the treasure? "You're not a real pirate!" she claims. "Am so." "Are not." "Am so." "Okay, prove it!" "How?" "You know, I had to prove I was a real princess once," she says. "I'm sure we can use the same method . . ." and she leaves him snoring on a tall pile of mattresses. But when the princess is in danger from a giant octopus, she quickly discovers the benefits of cooperation! Inspired by their success, the pirate and his new princess friend sail off together in search of further adventure.
