Harry Potter at the Hogwarts Library (aka Falk Library of the Health Sciences)

For six weeks, Falk Library masqueraded as the Hogwarts School Library as we hosted Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine, a travelling exhibit produced by the National Library of Medicine, and coordinated by the American Library Association. Several hundred students, faculty and visitors toured the exhibit, posed next to the life-sized picture of Professor Albus Dumbledore, and tried their luck at the Harry Potter trivia quiz.
