Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough that people don't tell me I sound like a character from "Fargo" anymore. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.

    I think it would be insane! Articles writeen and posted on the internet are easily discredited. It’s the dumbest thing on earth.

    Harry Potter books have a lot of good things in them for teens who are forming ideas about the world around, about their relationships, and themselves. They’re magical in more ways than one. I’d miss them. I haven’t checked them out of my school library, but my friends have. They couldn’t put them down. So, I guess they really speak to young people.

    Harry potter is about good triumphing over evil, not worshipping Satan.

    Don’t forget that the pastor taking away the books represent the same organization that burned people alive for not blindly following church doctrine 400 years ago. Something to think about…

    The Catholic Church doesn’t say the H P Books are bad: thee were articles out a couple years ago where a Vatican rep said they are good because they show Harry, etc fighting against evil. (Not choosing the easy paths, but the right ones.)

    This one minister does not speak for the Catholic Church.

    The Catholic church gave us the ‘inquisition’ and repression without end and would still do so today if it could get away with it.
    Church tolerance only begins where its authority ends.

    I love the HP books…ive reread them many times lol. I just don’t see why someone would want to ban them…because it is about good overcoming evil…I just don’t understand. And it’s just a story! It isn’t real! I’m not saying riot against your school if they take out the books, but maybe start a petition or something. Harry Potter is a great read. I love them!
