Were you shocked and moved by the story of Severus Snape? Oh my goodness. There was so much drama and discussion leading up to the final book after Dumbledore’s death.

Did you know that most libraries offer the opportunity to reserve books online? Pop on over to your local library site and look for an online catalog. What does this mean for you? A hassle free trip with the kids. You simply go to check out and they’ve got all your requested titles rounded up for you!

You can find this information on Amazon by scrolling down to the “Product Description” section. Don’t see it? Click here for visual instructions.
