From DCPL:

“DC Public Library users can now reserve newly-ordered books like “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and be in line before their release date.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story written for the stage. Set 19 years after the events of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” Harry is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband to Ginny Potter (née Weasley) and a father of three school-age children. While Harry struggles with his adult life and work, his youngest son finds living in his father’s shadow difficult.

Other big additions to the Library this August include Amy Schumer’s “Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo,” Imbolo Mbue’s “Behold the Dreamers” and Julia Gregson’s “Monsoon Summer.”

Customers can reserve “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and other books before their release date by visiting a Library location and speaking with a librarian or by reserving a copy online.
