PRESTONSBURG – The Floyd County Library invited the public to stop by for magical fun on Tuesday as it celebrated the release of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”
The first Harry Potter book was published in 1998 making it eight books written by once broke single mother J.K. Rowling. Rowling stated she was on the train when she came up with the plot for the novel. Harry Potter fans – both young and old – came out to enjoy the fun at the library on Tuesday.
“I think a fantasy novel that is exciting enough for children and adults to enjoy together and also may encourage their love of reading is exciting,” said Beth Hamilton. “This is actually one children’s themed movie that I look forward to watching as much as the children.”
Parents and children came out to the library to enjoy games, butterbeer, and the movie adaptation of “Harry Potter and Sorcerer’s Stone.”
The Floyd County Library continues to organize events for families to enjoy. It will host a free family movie day featuring Justice League: Gotham City Breakout at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
