Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is 20!

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book. We have bought new House editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for the Library that feature exclusive added material specific to each House. The first comment anyone says who seems them is ‘they are so beautiful’! You wouldn’t think librarians would get so excited about new editions – but they do!

As I was getting them ready for the shelves I lost count when I reached 6 staff coming up to have a look and feel and this started a great debate on who belongs to which house…we seem to have a lot of Gryffindor’s! If you want to be sorted into a House try this fun quiz.

The new editions will be available to borrow soon and can be reserved now – don’t forget to pick up your commemorative postcard next week to celebrate the birthday of this wonderful book

PS – It’s also World Chocolate Day so why not grab some chocolate and curl up with your House edition
