Harry Potter Book Release Party

Harry Potter Book Release Party

Main Library, Saturday, July 30, 8:00 PM - 12:30 AM

Grab some Floo Powder and your school robes because we are going back to Hogwarts. Come celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with games, crafts, and treats. Walk through the incredible Diagon Alley exhibit in the Bernheim Gallery, make your own potions with the Kentucky Science Center, create magical crafts with a bit of wand waving, and more.

Witches, wizards, squibs, and muggles of all ages are welcome and costumes are encouraged! For more information, call (502) 574-1620.
