Harry Potter flies in to library for party
DeKALB – Small, black-robed figures entered the DeKalb Public Library on Aug. 27 through a “brick wall” sponge-painted on a glass door.
The door represented Platform 93/4, which, as any fan of the Harry Potter series of books and movies knows, is the way to find the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The library hosted a Harry Potter Party, partially funded with a grant from Scholastic, in honor of the 15th anniversary of the series’ first book, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Library staff – many also in costume – directed herds of children between the activities, which included a horcrux hunt, a craft table where they could make a Deathly Hallows charm or a golden snitch, and a House Cup Trivia Tournament.
