Harry Potter Book Night: Fantastic Beasts (REGISTRATION REQUIRED)

1st February 2018 will see the fourth annual Harry Potter Book Night celebrated throughout the world and here at Westwood Public Library, we’re getting ready to host an unforgettable night themed around Fantastic Beasts. The fun kicks off at 6:30pm.

On Harry Potter Book Night: Fantastic Beasts, 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. Here at Westwood Public Library, young wizards, witches and Muggles will be treated to an evening of beastly games, readings from our favourite Harry Potter books and the Beastly Brain-teaser Quiz! It all begins when the Sorting Hat decides who will be in which house, and houses will be competing for house points throughout the evening.

This event requires registration and a ticket.
