Harry Potter returns to the Zanesville Campus Library

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (June 20, 2005) -- First-year students at Hogwarts in the magical Harry Potter series require robes, a pointed hat and dragonhide gloves. At the Zanesville Campus Library's 5th Annual Literacy and Creativity Workshop, Harry Potter enthusiasts in grades 4 through 7 are only required to have a willingness to learn and a little bit of creativity.

Students participating in the one-day workshop will be involved in activities, inspired by Rowling's world of magic and Muggles, that will encourage them to read and to use their imaginations. They will undertake several creative activities involving art, design and writing. Each project will challenge students to create a work as compelling as the world of Harry Potter.

Two workshops are being held this year. The first takes place Friday, July 22, and the second will be held on Friday, Aug. 5. Both workshops will begin at 9 a.m. with a graduation ceremony, open to the public, taking place at 4 p.m.

Registration for the workshop will start at 8:30 a.m. The $40 activity fee includes a meal fit for a wizard. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. There is a 20-student limit for each workshop, which is expected to fill quickly.
