Harry Potter Night

The library hosted our annual Harry Potter Night on the night of October 24. There was plenty of butterbeer and pumpkin pasties to go around. In addition to the food, students competed in costume, crazy sock, and trivia competitions and the Horcrux Hunt obstacle course. Many Lycoming staff and faculty dressed up as characters from the books and came to help make the night a success.

More pictures from the evening can be found on the library's Flickr page.
