Baxter Memorial Diagon Alley

A Harry Potter Book Night Event
Thursday, February 7th, 5:30-7:00pm

Congratulations, you’ve been accepted into Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry!  But wait, your letter says you need robes, wands, and other unusual things.

Baxter Memorial Library invites you to follow in Harry Potter’s footsteps and explore the shops of Diagon Alley.  First, stop at Gringotts Bank to pick up your bag of galleons. You will need the goblin gold to make your magical purchases for the evening. The proprietors at Flourish and Blotts have your acceptance letters to Hogwarts. Fill in your name with the provided ink and quill. Try on wizarding attire at Madam Malkin’s Robes For All Occasions and snap a picture in your new Hogwarts finery! Ollivanders is offering a wand-making workshop for young wizards. Lastly, don’t forget to stop at the Leaky Cauldron for refreshments.  The shops of Diagon Alley have sponsored our third annual trivia contest and winners will receive a swag bag filled with Harry Potter goodies.
