Harry Potter: A History of Magic is coming to Huddersfield! Kirklees Libraries are part of the Living Knowledge Network, an innovative partnership with 21 major libraries across the UK, and are working in partnership with the British Library to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

We'll have a display showing images of rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library's exhibition in London, as well as Kirklees treasures. You'll have a chance to see copies of the original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay.

We'll be supplementing the exhibition with a whole series of events and activities.

This is your opportunity to help us shape our Harry Potter celebrations in Kirklees.
