On 26 June it will be 20 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published and the world met Harry for the first time.

Celebrate by coming along to one of the fun Harry Potter 20 events at Braintree, Colchester, Harlow and South Woodham Ferrers.

Why not read (or rediscover) the book? To mark this special anniversary all Essex Libraries users will be able to gain unlimited access to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in e-book format for two weeks between 26 June and 9 July.  Access will be via the library app BorrowBox available on the library website, and there will be no limits on loan numbers, allowing simultaneous access for all.
