Harry Potter And The Assorted Dewey Decimal Classes

Book Cover: Harry Potter and the Cursed ChildCountless Harry Potter fans are eagerly awaiting tonight’s midnight release of the published script of the new Harry Potter play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I and II. There are currently 178 holds on the book in the San Jose Public Library catalog. It will soon join the ranks of the previous seven Harry Potter works on the library’s fictions shelves, but plenty of books inspired by the boy wizard can be found on our non-fiction shelves as well.

It seems the characters and events at Hogwarts have an infinite number of real-world applications. Here are a few Dewey Decimal classes that might lead you to a non-fiction work concerned with Harry Potter (note: some of these are e-books and thus will actually be found on our virtual shelves):
