Don't open those boxes of new Harry Potter books!
Libraries receiving the highly anticipated "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" book before it goes on sale face fines up to $200,000, according to a WKMG-TV report.
The new book doesn't come out until next week, but it will be in many local libraries early.
Librarians are under strict orders that no one can even crack open a box of the books.
In fact, libraries had to sign an agreement to keep the book locked up or face steep fines up to $200,000, WKMG reported.
The final book in the series will be officially released at 12:01 a.m. on July 21.
