HARRY POTTER DAY!

June 29, 2017

9AM - Noon

Trivia at Noon


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take a stroll down Diagon Alley? Imagine walking into Ollivanders to pick out your wand, or visiting Flourish and Blotts to collect your Hogwarts schoolbooks. Maybe you’d even swing by Sugarplum’s Sweets Shop to fill your sugar craving.


Join us at the Dover Public Library for a trip down Diagon Alley on Saturday, July 29 from 9am to 12pm for an early celebration of Harry Potter’s birthday. The event will end with a Harry Potter trivia competition at 12pm.
Attendees will receive their very own acceptance letter to Hogwarts and be sent on their way to Diagon Alley to collect their school supplies.
