Harry Potter: A History of Magic - 20th Oct 2017 - 4th Feb 2018

Have you ever wanted to delve into divination, ponder the peculiarities of potions and discover magical creatures? Now you can. In partnership with The British Library, Liverpool Libraries will be capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories.

Delving deep into our archives we will bring you a display of magical treasures and tales from the past and from our local area in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The exhibition is free and open during Central Library's normal opening hours.
