Juvenile Books: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Two copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been added to the library's juvenile circulating collection. To facilitate wider access to the titles, they are both currently located with AU Reserve Books and have a one-week circulation period. At the end of August, one copy will be removed from reserved and placed in the regular juvenile collection.

Reviews from various journals, such as Horn Book Magazine and Publisher's weekly, are pending due to the publisher embargo. However, there were two book reviews published late last week by the New York Times and the Baltimore Sun:

As early as Saturday morning other newspapers, blogs, and news shows were posting their reviews and comments on Harry Potter as well.

What about Ohio libraries? In addition to AU's two copies, the OhioLINK catalog details 6 OhioLINK libraries have copies of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, with two of those six libraries being the Cuyahoga County Public Library System and the Westerville Public Library.

All of the copies were checked out.

To put this into perspective, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Cuyahoga County Public Library ordered 845 copies of the book and already had 1000 requests and the Cleveland Public Library system "has more than 1,000 copies of the "Deathly Hallows" on reserve.

Update: 7/24/07

Horn Book has posted it's review of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. As noted by Roger Sutton in the Horn Book Blog, this review will be included in the October/November issue of Horn Book Magazine.

Likely Stories, BookList's blog, has linked to Booklists online review of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. No specifics are in place regarding it's publication date for the journal, but the reviewer has given the book a starred review.
