Warner Bros. Pictures

Saturday marks the 20th publishing anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the U.S. version of J.K. Rowling's first novel, which hit store shelves on Sep. 1, 1998. On the list below, I've got 21 Harry Potter quotes you can share on the 20th anniversary of Sorcerer's Stone, so get your Insta-perfect picture ready to caption.

Harry Potter celebrated its 20th anniversary in the U.K. last year, with a months-long exhibit at the British Library and two new books: Harry Potter: A History of Magic, The Book of the Exhibition and Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic. Bringing the magic of Harry Potter's 20th anniversary stateside, the New-York Historical Society has announced a variety of events for the momentus occasion. Not only is the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition opening in NYC on Oct. 5, but the New-York Historical Society will also host a "Growing Up With Harry Potter" open mic night with The Story Studio, as well as panels of Harry Potter collaborators, including audiobook narrator Jim Dale.

The New-York Historical Society isn't the only institution getting in on the Harry Potter fun, however. In honor of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone's 20th anniversary, the digital library app Libby will offer every user the opportunity to download and read the eBook version of Harry's Year One adventures for free. From Aug. 27 through Sept. 10, Libby users may download Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone from their library's Libby service with no waitlist.
