Harry Potter Movie Release Party


This past Saturday, the Children and Teen departments hosted a Harry Potter Movie Release party to celebrate this week's release of J.K. Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them'. The kids and teens participated in a Sorting Hat quiz, Harry Potter trivia, and some awesome crafts! They made wands, house pins and felt ties, perler bead house crests, broomsticks, and bookmarks. We were lucky to be joined by the Boston University Quidditch team who spent a couple of hours teaching the kids the basics of the game!
