Delevan-Yorkshire Public Library
During the Summer of 2016, five different "Story Walks" were displayed around the Library building and parking lot. Visitors walked about 1/4 mile while enjoying five classic tales: "Caps for Sale," "The Little House," "Millions of Cats," "Stone Soup" and "The Story of Ferdinand." Each story was displayed for two weeks at a time, beginning June 24th and ending September 3rd.
Harry Potter's Birthday was celebrated with a "Hogwarts Academy" Birthday Party from 10 pm July 30 to 12:01 am on July 31st. Participants were sorted into houses, attended classes such as "Potions, Magical Creatures,Transformations, & History of Magic". They enjoyed snacks, including birthday cake, ice cream and punch. At the end of the event, a name was drawn and one lucky winner got to take home the latest book by J.K. Rowling, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."
