If you’re a Muggle who wants to learn your way around Diagon Alley, or you’ve ever been considered for a position in the Ministry of Magic, visit Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library for Harry Potter Family Night, set for 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7.
“The Cashiers Community Library is very excited to offer its very first Harry Potter Book Night,” said James Stewart-Payne, Youth Services Coordinator at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library.
In planning this night of frivolity and fun, we hope the children and adults will leave the event filled with the wondrous magic J.K. Rowling so expertly created in her books. It is our hope that through our celebration of these beloved books that a love of reading, and of Harry Potter, will be kindled in our youngest participants. Perhaps we’ll even inspire a wizened reader to return to the books for a second read!”
Participants, who are encouraged to arrive dressed as their favorite Potterverse character, will discover a party in full swing, complete with snacks, games, crafts, readings and trivia challenges. At the core of the event is a deep appreciation for the Harry Potter books, which have a rabid fanbase that stretches around the world, and even a few realms beyond.
As Hermione Granger says in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, “When in doubt, go to the library!” But there’s no doubt about this: the first annual Harry Potter Book Night at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library will be magical, bookish fun for the entire family!
According to Potter publisher Bloomsbury, “Harry Potter Book Night is a chance for fans young and old to celebrate JK Rowling’s wonderful series – and it’s a chance to pass the magic on to new readers who haven’t yet discovered these unforgettable books.”
