CLC's Harry Potter Book Night Extravaganza!
On Monday, February 9th, the Children’s Literature Centre participated in the Bloomsbury Books worldly Harry Potter Book night. This wonderful, themed book night was celebrated worldwide in many book review centres, book stores, libraries and community organizations to highlight the importance of igniting a love of reading through the magical Harry Potter Book series. There were many Allegany County locals being “sorted” at our very own sorting ceremony and these wizards and muggles truly enjoyed the many wizardry activities, book discussions and storytelling sessions within the Children’s Literature Centre as the enchanting venue. Check out our very own Sorting Hat below!
The following authors and illustrators will be featured at this year's Festival:
