Harry Potter & the Container of Sweets!

To get ready for the Harry Potter's World exhibit, we had a bit of a trick for you!  Everyone was invited to guess how many jelly beans were in the jars at the Carlson Library and Mulford Library circulation desks, and two lucky patrons won the complete 8 DVD set of the Harry Potter movies. 

Congratulations to Dylan G. on Main Campus and Corlette V. on Health Science Campus... enjoy your movies and LOTS of jelly beans!
