Deadline approaching for the Harry Potter puppet theater contest

Time's ticking away on our Summer of Harry Potter, and so far it's been a blast! This is a reminder from your friendly librarian that the deadline for the Harry Potter Puppet Theater Contest is Friday, July 29 by 5 p.m.

As you're busy creating your own Harry Potter puppet masterpiece, I wanted to share with you a few more reminders:

1. The puppet show should be five minutes or less.

2. Winners will receive a Harry Potter prize pack and points for their Hogwarts House. If members of more than one house are teaming up to create a winning puppet show, those members will have to split the House points.

3. Your video file MUST be in one of the following digital formats: .avi, .mpg (or .mpeg), .wmv, or .mov and no larger than 700 MB.

4.Don't forget to burn your video file onto a blank CD-ROM and turn it in at the children's desk of the Library.

If you have any questions, give me a shout. Good luck!
