The party was for children ages 8 to 12 years old and celebrated the upcoming release of the film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." It is the latest in the series of films based on the books by J.K. Rowling.

With the excitement building for the Nov. 19 release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," Columbia Public Library welcomed young wizard enthusiasts to a party on Friday.
