Harry Potter Casts a Spell on the Livingston Library

Harry Potter fans were able to celebrate their wizard love at two Livingston Library events.

Close to 500 fans, some in costume, attended our Harry Potter Family Halloween event.  Children went from station to station to create Mini Monster Books, Edible Wizard Hats, Charms Practice (a.k.a. Dementor Bowling) and complete a Riddle Challenge to free Dobby from danger.  The night would not be complete without a family photo op on Platform 9 3/4.

Teens had the library to themselves on a Saturday night as they competed in house events, earning points for prizes while the library was closed!  Houses Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin played Quidditch, mixed potions, answered HP trivia questions and conducted a Horcrux Hunt as they searched for the seven pieces of Voldemort’s fragmented soul.

After the House Competition, teens enjoyed snacks of wizard hats and homemade butterbeer while viewing the film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on the big screen.

The winning house members earned special prizes, a few special participants earned door prizes and all other wizard fans reached into the giant cauldron for a goodie bag.

The foam on the butterbeer of the night: the Livingston Library Teen Advisory Board planned, organized and helped run the event.

—  Gina Vaccaro, Youth Services Librarian
