Harry Potter

Teen Thursday at The Little Blue Library

Today is Thursday, Nov 8, and we will be having Month of Magic part 2 The Wand Shop.  We are celebrating Harry Potter all month, and this week we will be making wands.  We may not actually have a wand shop, but we do have wood, paint, and other decorations to make a wand of our own.  Cheesy? Yes.  Fun? Yes.  This magical activity will be for ages 11 to 18 and take place under the Tree House of Mercer Botanic Gardens at 4 pm.  Come join us!

Monday, November 12th at 6:30 PM – Wand Workshop and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (PG-13) [13+]

 

Ollivanders in Diagon Alley has been the place to go for ready made wands for decades.

Lucky for us that you can make your own custom wand right here at the Parker Williams Branch Library on Monday, November 12th at 6:30.

While creating your unique wand, we’ll be watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to refresh or catch up before The Crimes of Grindelwald is released.

Teen Events this Week!

On Monday, November 5, at 4:30-5:30 PM, come by the Teen Room to make paracord bracelets. Not only are they fun to make, but they can be donated to first responders. Craft for a Cause!

Then on Thursday, November 8, from 6:15-7:15 PM, Dumbledore's Army meets! Come to the new monthly program that focuses on all things Harry Potter. Each month we solemnly swear to discuss favorite HP books and movies while either crafting, playing games, watching a movie, or anything else we think up relating to the Wizarding World.

Thursday at The Little Blue Library


Today is Thursday, Nov 1, and we will have our teen program.  This month we will celebrate Harry Potter, and today we will have our Month of Magic part 1: “Marauder’s Map Scavenger Hunt”.  Using GPS coordinates we will uncover what the Marauder’s Map tries to hide.  It will begin at the Tree House at Mercer Botanic Gardens and will venture out to explore the gardens as part of the program.  This activity is for ages 11 to 18 and will begin at 4 pm.  Come join us for a fun and magical time!

Teen Dumbledore's Army - Oct. 11 @ 6:15

Last month was the first meeting of Dumbledore's Army! Teens were able to craft their own wands, get their wand permit, and take a quiz to find out what their wand was made of. If you missed the meeting last month, don't despair! We are meeting up again this Thursday, October 11, at 6:15 PM.

This month may get a bit spooky as we are going to make our own dementors. The craft can be a bit messy, so wear appropriate clothing! Hope to see you there! 

For teens and tweens in grades 6-12.
