Harry Potter Party – Saturday, Nov. 4 @ 3:30 pm

Two separate parties will be going on this afternoon: more information will arrive via Owl as the date approaches! Hoo Hoo!  It’s here:

Magical creatures between the ages of 8 and 15 are welcome to come travel through Diagon Alley where they can create their own wand at Olivander’s Wands, play “Harry Potter” Trivial Pursuit or sample Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans.  At Hogwarts,  they will be sorted by the Sorting Hat into either Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Slytherin or Hufflepuff. After the sorting, children can, with their house teammates, participate in a game of quidditch, practice potions or campaign for fair treatment of house elves.

The festivities begin at 3:30 but the library closes at 6:00 so don’t be late! Witches and Warlocks in Middle School and up will meet in the Tech Studio so they don’t have to fuss with the underclassmen in the Community Room!
