Suffolk Libraries has partnered with the British Library to run an exhibition of images from the British Library’s display, which celebrates the roots of the Harry Potter series with the history of magic and folklore.

The touring display will be at Ipswich County Library from October 20-December 4, before moving on to Haverhill Library from December 8-31 and stopping at Felixstowe Library between January 5 and February 5.
