20 years of Harry Potter sparks celebration
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.
To register & be included in the sorting ceremony call the Library at 403-823-1371.
If you’d like to take part or have items you can offer/loan call Harrison at 403-823-1315 Find out more on Facebook @ DrumhellerFCSS.
