A Harry Potter Trivia Contest is planned as part of Harry Potter Night beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, October 26 in the West Reading Room of Booth Library.

Teams of between two and six players may register online now at Both campus and community members are encouraged to form a team for the trivia contest. Trivia participants are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite Harry Potter-inspired costume. Prizes will be awarded and the top three winning teams also will be awarded special prizes. Free parking will be available in the lot just southwest of the library off of Fourth Street. The deadline to register is October 21.

Proceeds from the Harry Potter Trivia Contest will benefit HOPE of East Central Illinois, a Coalition Against Domestic Violence agency based in Charleston that serves seven area counties.

Harry Potter Night is one of several programs being held in conjunction with Booth Library's fall exhibit, Twenty Years of Harry Potter: Celebrating a Phenomenon, which will be on display through December 31. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
