Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company has announced the schedule for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Knight Bus Tour. The only stop in New Jersey will be at The Newark Public Library, 5 Washington Street, Saturday, June 9 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The Knight Bus, based on the unique triple-decker bus described in the Harry Potter books, will depart from New York City on June 1, and over a seven week period travel to 37 libraries across the country. It will wind up back at Scholastic headquarters to kick off the seventh and final book in the series at 12:01 a.m. on July 21.

At The Newark Public Library, as at each location where the vehicle stops, a select number of fans will have the chance to board the Knight Bus to make a video sharing their thoughts and feelings about why they love the Harry Potter books. Select video clips from each location will be uploaded for viewing on www.scholastic.com/harrypotter. Each person will receive a unique user name and password so that they can view their video online.

The lucky fans will be randomly selected from entry forms that are available at all library locations (main and branches) and on the Web site, www.npl.org/Pages/ProgramsExhibits/Programs/HarryPotterEntryForm.pdf. Completed forms may be dropped off at any Newark Public Library location or mailed to: Michele Cappetta, Harry Potter Knight Bus, Newark Public Library, PO Box 630, Newark, NJ 07101-0630. Entries must be received by Thursday, May 24, 2007.
