Join us for Harry Potter Day at the Library! 

"There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don’t expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few…Who possess, the predisposition… I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." - Severus Snape Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Join us for Harry Potter Day at the Library! Stop in anytime between 3:00p-3:45p to create some fun potions. No registration necessary. Program intended for school-age children and up.
