SPECIAL DISPATCH - 2017 GREAT READ marks Harry Potter's 20th anniversary January 5, 2017


January 5, 2017

Education Partners,

The 2017 Great Read community literacy program is underway, and promises to be "magical"!

This year's program celebrates the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, which has had an immense impact on literature, films and popular culture worldwide.

  • The Great Read Opening Gala on February 2, 2017 will feature a Harry Potter costume contest and Team Trivia Contest. Trivia Teams of up to five members must pre-register for the contest. Registration is not required for the costume contest. Prizes will be awarded to winners of both contests.
  • Artists of all ages are also invited to submit Harry Potter-inspired works to their home-town library for the The Great Read Art Contest.   Winners will be awarded in three age groups.
  • The Closing Gala on February 28, 2017 will include a family-oriented Harry Potter-themed Magic Show and the naming of the Art Contest winners.

District 202 is a proud member of The Great Read and is excited to help mark one of the most significant phenomenons of all time. 

Hope to see you at these Great Read special programs and the many related events at our 10 partner libraries in the District 202 area.
