How Harry Potter Spent the Winter at Bryant University

Harry Potter Exhibit

It all started with the NER Weekly Update. I happened to click on the link about booking an NLM traveling exhibit (https://nnlm.gov/ner/blog/2014/12/18/book-at-nlm-travelling-exhibit/) and thus the adventure began. We worked with the NLM Exhibition team to find an open calendar spot and book the World of Harry Potter and Renaissance Medicine . The process was incredibly easy and setting up the exhibit itself was quite simple.

This was a fantastic opportunity to welcome folks from the University community as well as surrounding towns to our campus. We even had a middle school program plan a field trip around visiting the exhibit!
We were thrilled with this experience and will be looking to host another exhibit in the future.
