We solemnly swear that we are up to no good at the fourth annual Harry Potter Day!

Join us at the Dover Public Library to help us manage a little mischief on Saturday, October 19 from 10am to 3pm. The event will end with a Harry Potter trivia competition at 3pm.

Attendees will be whisked away to Hogwarts through Platform 9 ¾ where their personality traits will help to decide which house they belong to. After they are sorted, they will pick out the perfect wand at Ollivander’s; support their house by creating a colorful banner for their dormitory; make a bookmark to keep their place while they read their favorite forbidden book; and find inspiration with a wizarding world quote to hang on their wall.

The mischief making will continue with fortune telling, potion demonstrations, a game of Quidditch, and a flight in Mr. Weasley’s Ford Anglia photo booth (but don’t get caught by the Whomping Willow!) Food trucks will be available during lunch hours to serve any hungry wizards.

Throughout the event, attendees are invited to join in on a scavenger hunt for products from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. If completed, participants will receive an entry into a raffle for a wizarding world themed prize. Another prize will be given to the winning team of the trivia competition.

In addition, to celebrate all the magical knitting mentioned in the Harry Potter series, Dover Public Library will be collecting any hand knit or crocheted hats (child or adult sizes) for Hermione’s Helping Hats.

The program, run in association with the library’s monthly knitting group, will be gathering hats throughout the month of October and distributing them to those who many need some extra warmth this winter. Those who wish to participate should drop off their hats to the library before Saturday, November 2.
