That's a Lot of Harry Potter

Last week the Sun-Times also reported that the Chicago Public Library has ordered a whopping 1,000 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is scheduled to be released on July 21. Patrons will not be able to reserve a copy. Instead, the books will be available on a strictly first-come, first-served basis. Suburban libraries are also stocking up, and hundreds of people have already placed holds on the copies. Good luck!
