Main Library Bernheim Gallery:

Harry Potter's World

On display through August 14, 2016!

Harry Potter's World exhibit

As part of the Summer Reading Program at LFPL, the Bernheim Gallery has been enchanted, transforming into the magical, wacky Diagon Alley. This exhibit, straight from the pages and films of the wildly popular Harry Potter series, features some of the best-known shops of the Wizarding World. Admire the Firebolt broomstick in Quality Quidditch Supplies, find your spellbooks at Flourish & Blotts, peruse the owls at Eeylops Owl Emporium, and more! Patrons young and old will further delight as they read through panels, donated by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, that explain the Renaissance’s influence on Harry Potter’s world.

Special thanks to the following for their contributions to this exhibit: Architectural Salvage, LFPL’s Design & Construction Team, Actors Theatre of Louisville Prop Shop, Dr. R. Ted Steinbock, Frazier History Museum, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, and Library Staff.

Gallery Hours: Mon-Thur, 9 am - 9 pm; Fri/Sat, 9 am - 5 pm; Sun, 1-5 pm

#LiterarySwag Project

On display through Summer 2016

#literaryswag Project

Farnsley Middle School’s #LiterarySwag Project is designed to promote literacy by featuring photos of Farnsley students who are reading and also look stylish.  Language Arts teacher, Kelly Franklin, was inspired by the #literaryswag movement created by New York writer Yahdon Israel, who used social media to combine his two favorite things: fashion and books. Students were photographed at school by photographer Jessica Holman.

Images from the exhibit can also be seen on LFPL's Facebook album.
