I always thought of it as fantasy but when I went to work at a library it was shelved in general fiction.  Just wanted some feedback from others.

Also I was thinking since it was the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter series, I would like to start a re-read thread but not sure if where to put it...

Your librarian has it shelved incorrectly, but on purpose.  MOST people read general fiction and due to the popularity of Harry Potter, they just stick it where it is most likely to be noticed. My library has it in both places - general fiction for the kids and fantasy in the adult section.
