“You’re a wizard, Harry!”
Do you remember the first time you read that passage or watched it unfold on screen? It still gives me goosebumps, and I’ve read the books and watched the movies multiple times, as I’m sure many of you have as well. This Friday, July 15th, marks the end of an era with the final installment of the Harry Potter movies with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. And while the movies and books have played out their final chapters, Harry Potter will continue to reach new generations of muggles and ensnare them with his magical abilities, his loyalty, his bravery and his sacrfice, and yes, even his flaws. And so, it is with heavy hearts and weepy eyes that we bid Harry, Ron and Hermione farewell; that is until the next time we pick up a book or watch a movie that transports us back into their magical world. Thanks for the memories!
Take a look back at all of the Harry Potter movies here:

This week is National Library Week, and the AUM Library is celebrating by offering those with library fines the chance to help the hungry. Come pay off your overdue fees April 11-16 by donating non-perishable food items, which the Library will give to the Montgomery Food Bank. Bring only items that are canned or boxed and not dented, opened or expiring soon. Donations will apply only to overdue fees and not lost item replacement or processing fees.
And the best part – you don’t have to owe any fees to donate! For more information, visit the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Library Tower.
The Library would also like to invite everyone to “Spring into Reading” at its National Library Week open house on Tuesday at 1 p.m. with refreshments in the lobby on the first floor. While you are there, hop on up to the second floor and check out the Learning Center’s new location, room 225.
The Library is incredibly grateful for the support from Coach Crotz, AUM Athletics, Moe’s Southwest Grill and all of our fans!
The following is an excerpt from an e-mail sent by AUM Athletic Director Steve Crotz.
This Wednesday we will have the last Moe’s Southwest Grill Day before the check presentation at the baseball game on April 23, 2011. We’re hoping that this can be our biggest day yet. Please take a few minutes to place this on your calendar and also to personally invite a friend or two to attend. All proceeds from this promotion go to assist the Friends of the Library Fund and Athletics.
Support AUM by eating at Moe’s Southwest Grill on Wednesday, February 2nd. Be sure to take an AUM/Moe’s flyer and AUM will receive 20 percent of your purchase receipt. Flyers must be given to the cashier in order for AUM to receive the profit.

The AUM SGA has made it possible for textbooks to be available in the library for students at the start of the Spring 2011 semester. Students will be able to check-out the textbooks at the circulation desk on the 1st floor in the Library by presenting their AUM Student ID. However, the textbooks can only be used in the Library and only in two-hour increments.
Special thanks to the SGA for making this possible!
