Happy Birthday Arthur Weasley

Happy Birthday to our favorite muggle-obsessed father, Arthur Weasley! 

 As head of the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office in the Ministry of Magic, Arthur's job is to keep  muggles away from objects that have been bewitched by wizards. Of course we all remember the flying Ford Anglia that Arthur enchanted to fly and what a mess that created for him at work after Harry and Ron flew the car all the way to Hogwarts.

 Arthur is fascinated with simple things such as batteries, plugs and bus stops, but anyone who has read the Harry Potter series knows that Arthur's dearest wish is to know how airplanes fly. Well wouldn't he love to know that our new LSTA grant is all about science! 

Over the next few weeks we will be getting books as part of this grant. Look for a little green sticker that says 'LSTA' on the spine  to see if it is part of this grant. This covers subjects like math, space, animals, plants, biology, physics, chemistry and more. So be sure to think of Arthur Weasley as you peruse these new items, although, I'm afraid we won't have any books on how to enchant a car to fly or become invisible.
