Glatfelter Memorial Library Holds Harry Potter Themed Read-A-Thon
"I think the Harry Potter books series continues to appeal to such a diverse group, that is it a great book to bring folks together to celebrate reading. I think Potter-heads will be delighted to mingle with others that are truly fascinated with the world that J.K. Rowling created,” says Glatfelter Memorial Library Manager Ellen Helfrick. According to Helfrick, each of the 36 community readers are striving to raise $100 in pledges before the event. That day, Century 21 Realtor Elle Hale will match donations received in the donation bin, dollar for dollar, up to $250. “Our Friends of Glatfelter Memorial Library hold this important fundraiser annually because we count on our community support,” says Helfrick. “And this year, combining a beloved book with such fun engagement is a win-win!” Anyone with questions about the Read-A-Thon is encouraged to call the library at (717) 225-3220.
