This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Book Review
I read this play in four hours. It is definitely not an eighth book since we have new heroes. It begins right where book seven leaves off... at Kings Cross station. Since I do not follow the Pottermore stories, and having grown up with the Harry Potters books, reading this book was like easing back into the magical world, although I do wish there was a little more magic involved. Our heroic trio are now parents, so a new theme is parenting in addition to the themes of friendship and love. This book will definitely make sense if you have already read the Harry Potter books and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" in particular.
