Harry Potter Day at County Library Attracts Fans

BAY COUNTY, Fla. - Witches and wizards of Panama City gathered at the Bay County Library Saturday Afternoon for "Harry Potter Day". Gryffidor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw, no matter the house, all we're welcome. 

In honor of the 20th birthday of the first book in the series being published, the library hosted a themed scavenger hunt complete with refreshments and stations for activities. 

In the scavenger hunt, those participating were searching for the seven horcruxes that helped to defeat Lord Voldemort, those who collected all seven were rewarded with a Gold Snitch. Organizers say that the Harry Potter series is not only popular in theaters, but just as great in print. 

"This book is one of the books that really gets some of the reluctant readers reading and so I think that also touches a lot of people and is why they love the stories" said Bay County Library Marketing Coordinator, Sarah Burns.

The library has a big event like this every year. Last year's theme was Dr. Who and there's no telling what next year's theme will be yet.
