Many people including my wife absolutely love the Harry Potter series. The books the movies everything about the series is fun, as long as you don't fall asleep while watching the movies like I do. So, people in East Texas are going to be excited to hear that the Longview Public Library is celebrating Harry Potter week, which will include story time with Hagrid and Hermione.

To make this fun event a bit more challenging the Longview Public Library is closed this week due to some maintenance issues that popped up unexpectedly. But this doesn't change the fact that it's Harry Potter week! On Saturday, August 14th the Longview Symphony Orchestra is putting on a concert: The Magic of Harry Potter. It will be their first live performance since February 16, 2021. You can purchase tickets to that show by clicking here.
