February 7th 2019 will see the fifth 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 Hogwarts. The fun kicks off at 6:30pm.

On Harry Potter Book Night: Hogwarts, 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 magical games, readings from our favourite Harry Potter books, and the Hidden Hogwarts 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.
