Library Holds "Potter Party"

It was a big day for Harry Potter fans young and old at the Tyler Library Saturday.

As part of the City's Summer Reading Program, a "Harry Potter party" was held. Dressed like characters from the popular books and movies, kids had a chance to get into the spirit. After playing some "Harry Potter" themed games and reading from the books, the kids even got some prizes for being best dressed.

The fictional character has become somewhat of an icon to children across the country over the last few years. The "Summer Reading Club" has a number of events for kids of all ages this summer. For more information, call the Tyler Public Library at 903-593-7323.
