Anonymous Patron writes "The Rochdale Observer, a paper in the UK, reports a Councillor has provoked a storm by writing to Rochdale library chief Paul Guy complaining about a ‘Hotter than Potter’ event at Smithy Bridge library last month.One local resident is so angry with the councillor he has written to Charles Kennedy, the leader of the Liberal Democrat party, to complain about her.

The Councillor wrote: "Halloween can be a frightening time for a lot of children who are scared of the dark. I have never read the Harry Potter books, but there is no such thing as a good witch and as a Christian I believe we should be teaching children about goodness and light."
Funniest quote is from her boss: "This is just a storm in a cauldron..." not sure if he meant the pun or not though."
