Logue Library's Harry Potter Display is Awesome! come Check it Out!

Our Harry Potter Display looks great in Logue Library!  Getting ready for Chestnut Hill College's annual "Harry Potter Weekend." 
A schedule of events is shown below.




Stop into the library to see our display created by our Librarian, Kelly Liberona.  When asked why she chose to create this display she stated that,"
I’ve loved Harry Potter since age 8 when the story had first begun back in 1998. It really encouraged my love of reading. I got to grow up with the books as they were published. It’s such a great tale of good vs. evil, friendship, and love.
As you can imagine, I love working at the “Harry Potter school” where the similarities between Chestnut Hill College and Hogwarts are celebrated and explored. CHC has the same warm and welcoming feeling you get when you read about Hogwarts (or watch it in the movies). Chestnut Hill College [Hogwarts] truly is home for us Harry Potter lovers.  I wanted to give the library a bit of a magical feeling, so I strung the “floating” candles like the lobby is Hogwart’s Great Hall and culled my yard for the perfect sticks to create a realistic broomstick. The broom levitates mid-air as a tribute to our Quidditch Team.  Happy Harry Potter Weekend!"












Now, let's talk about the Logue Library.....
