The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - terri Hux­ley

For mug­gles and wiz­ards alike, the Drumheller Val­ley FCSS and Pub­lic Li­brary have a jam-packed even­ing full of witchcraft and wiz­ardry in hon­our of Harry Pot­ter’s 20th an­niver­sary since its first pub­li­ca­tion, on June 28 ,from four to seven p.m.

Wiz­ard­ing robes or Harry Pot­ter cos­tumes and gear is a must when you come to the Li­brary.

“We love to give peo­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties to im­merse them­selves in sto­ries at the li­brary, whether through crafts and games at sto­ry­time, in our re­cent writ­ing work­shops, or by turn­ing the li­brary briefly into Hog­warts,” said Emily Hol- ling­shead, Li­brary Di­rec­tor.

Fans of all ages can look for­ward to Harry Pot­ter themed games and ac­tiv­i­ties start­ing, of course, with a sort­ing cer­e­mony.

“I am so ex­cited about this event,” said FCSS Co­or­di­na­tor April Har­ri­son. “As it’s a celebration of the first book, we have de­signed a se­ries of tasks that in­di­vid­u­als or groups can try to com­plete in or­der to save the Philoso­pher’s Stone from Pro­fes­sor Quir­rell.”

Take part in a Po­tions trea­sure hunt, test the ex­perts in a ‘stump the Pro­fes­sor quiz’, ex­plore our Gryffindor, Slytherin, Huf­flepuff, and Raven­claw themed com­mon rooms and try Quid­ditch for be­gin­ners.

Or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for older Harry Pot­ter fans to join a panel of ‘Pro­fes­sors’ as well as old trunks, suit­cases and bird cages to com­plete the li­brary’s trans­fig­u­ra­tion into Hog­warts, “We also need two adult teams for a Quid­ditch match that will end the event, so if any­one is in­ter­ested in tick­ing Quid­ditch off their Par­tic­i­paction Playlist I’d love to hear from them,” Har­ri­son added.
