​Sylva -- February 5th 2015 will see the first ever Harry Potter Book Night celebrated throughout the world and here at the Jackson County Library, we’re getting ready for our own special evening of wizard activities. The fun kicks off at 6 PM. 

On Harry Potter Book Night, we’ll be sharing the wonder of J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable stories and, most excitingly, introducing the next generation of readers to the unparalleled magic of Harry Potter. Young wizards, witches and Muggles will be treated to an evening of games, activities, readings and quizzes.

It all begins when the Sorting Hat decides who will be in which House, competing for house points throughout the evening’s challenges. These will include a Harry Potter fancy dress competition, readings from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and a fiendish Harry Potter Trivia Challenge! We’ll be dressing up the venue and serving up snacks inspired by some of the scrumptious wizard foods in the books – from Cauldron Cakes to Pumpkin Pasties!
