In today's programme we meet a children's librarian who talks to us about the enduring popularity of the Harry Potter books.
Jo Jacobs explains why she thinks the books appeal to both children and adults. She also describes the magical events that take place at bookshops at midnight on the day a new Harry Potter book is published.
