"Harry Potter," by author J.K. Rowling, has been a series that has influenced the lives of the old and the young for decades. Since its first publication in June of 1997 it has bewitched men, women, children, the elderly and everyone in between . Since its release it has encouraged all ages to pick up reading as a hobby and to explore the world of books and imagination.
Herriman City Library, along with the other libraries in the Salt Lake County Library System, have teamed up to recreate Diagon Alley, a location found in the Harry Potter series where young witches and wizards can peruse and purchase magic supplies to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. J.K. Rowling created a very intricate and creative world of magic, witches, wizards, wands, spells and quidditch.
The possibility of experiencing Diagon Alley from the local library was very appealing to all ages in Herriman City. Sources from the Herriman City Library stated there were approximately 250 participants in the Diagon Alley events at the Herriman Library at the end of July. The age ranges went from young children to pre-teens to teens and even adults participating in the activities set up by the city library and librarians. These activities consisted of crafts, search and finds across the library and of course prizes for those who participated.
Several residents stated that they love the opportunity they have to participate in library activities and it is a great reason to get out of the house and encourage reading. Library staff has also stated that they create activities like this throughout the year depending on the season as well as popularity of previous activities hosted by the library. If you are ever bored, wanting to get out or looking for a great new read, Herriman City Library is the place to go.
