Harry Potter's World Exhibit and Family Day

hpotter flyer“There was a lot more to magic, as Harry quickly found out, than waving your wand and saying a few funny words.” Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter's World is an exhibition developed and produced by the Exhibition Program at the National Library of Medicine. Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine is a six-banner traveling exhibition created to explore the link between Harry Potter and the history of science using materials from the National Library of Medicine.

Harry Potter’s World will stop on its tour around the United States at the Collierville Burch Library from July 3 through August 12th, 2017.

On July 11th the Collierville Burch Library will host Explore Harry Potter’s World Family Day from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. Join the fun in this library-wide celebration of Harry Potter's World. In conjunction with the 6 theme panels of the exhibit, there will be 6 stations for families to participate in with activities related to each panel. Check out the traveling exhibit, create an immortality stone, make a mask, plant herb seeds, build a monster out of Legos, and make a wand, and see some live animals in a special presentation of Magical Creatures!

The magic in J. K. Rowling’s series of Harry Potter novels is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy. Harry Potter's World: Renaissance, Science, Magic, and Medicine explores the intersection of these worlds, featuring highlights from the collections of the History of Medicine Division at the National Library of Medicine.
