Harry Potter 20th Anniversary

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary

The NHC Public Library celebrated the 20 year publication anniversary of Harry Potter in the U.K. last year, but did you know that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone wasn't published in the U.S.A. until a year later? Hard as it is to believe, we went a whole year without Harry in the States! Library staff think this deserves a second party. We hope you'll join us for another magical Harry Potter Day! Family-friendly activities include:

Fearson's Feathered Friends with the Raptor Center

Fishers Feisty Fiends with the Fort Fisher Aquarium

McMana's Mammal Menagerie with the Sheriff's Office Animal Unit

History of Magic Class with Professor Sheppard

Herbology Class with the New Hanover County Cooperative Extension

The Sorting Hat - get sorted into your Hogwarts House!

The Restricted Section: Library books for check out

Ollivanders: Wand-making

Charms: Different hands on activities to learn form, control, and power when casting spells
