Sharing thoughts on Harry Potter could net a copy of new book

June 10, 2005

Gather your quills and magical ink.

The Washington County Free Library and Friends of the Library are sponsoring a poster and essay contest to celebrate the release on July 16 of the sixth book in the Harry Potter series.

An essay about your thoughts on the Harry Potter books, a new book idea or something about your favorite scene or character should be neatly printed or typed. Keep the essay to 300 words or less.

Any medium may be used to design a poster on poster board that is no larger than 22 inches by 28 inches and shows a scene from a Harry Potter book, your idea of Hogwarts or a character from the books.


Youths may enter one or both contests.

Each entry must include your name, phone number, age and the library branch where you submitted it.

Entries must be submitted by closing on Thursday, June 30, at any Washington County Free Library branch.

On Saturday, July 16, each library branch will award its essay and poster winners copies of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."

Winners will be notified by phone. All entries become property of Friends of the Library and will be published or displayed as the group determines.
