A rundown of all the regularly scheduled programs happening at your local libraries

Saturdays at Hogwarts

Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Central Point Library’s Harry Potter event returns for the second year! Pre-register in person or by phone with the Central Point Library before March 8 for each Saturday session. All events are for children and teens, ages 6–18 years.

Sessions for First Year Participants

Wand Crafting Session One

Saturday, March 9 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Design and craft your own wizarding wand using glue guns and accessories. Take your wand home to paint on your own, or leave it at the Library for the second Wand Crafting Session. Only one wand per child. Parent supervision recommended at our hot glue stations. 

Wand Crafting Session Two

Saturday, March 16 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Give your wizarding wand some final touches! Learn how to paint a natural-looking wood finish, or decorate it however you like! 

Diagon Alley Day for First Years

Saturday, March 23 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

In your Hogwarts letter, you will receive a list of items to be found during the Diagon Alley Day scavenger hunt! Sign-in, stop at Gringotts to get your money, and then begin purchasing your supplies for Hogwarts! Don’t forget to stop by Ollivander’s to either buy your wand or to get it approved, and save some money so you can stop at Sugar Plum’s Sweet Shop. 

Hogwarts House Party

Saturday, March 30 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

This is the big event! Kids will be welcomed to Hogwarts with a Sorting Ceremony and will then experience the magic of going to Hogwarts! Earn points for your house by participating in classes, and then see which House gets the House Cup in the end!

Sessions for Second Year Participants

O.W.L.’s Prep Session One

Saturday, March 9 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Earn points for your House as you show off your knowledge. A teacher will be present to help you, and other students will be here to study with you.

O.W.L.’s Prep Session Two

Saturday, March 16 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Be ready for more in-depth and challenging questions, as you’re challenged to fire off spells and answer questions for our lightning rounds!

Diagon Alley Day for Second Years

Saturday, March 23 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Go on a Scavenger Hunt for your supplies for Hogwarts, check in with Ollivander’s and make sure your wand is up to par, but don’t forget to stop by Knockturn Alley to check out what they might have to help you with your O.W.L. exams. You never know what you might find!

O.W.L. Exams!

Saturday, March 30 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.

While the rest of the school does regular classes, Second Years’ will be set up for O.W.L. exams. While you wait for you O.W.L. exams to commence, nothing else will happen, and you certainly won’t have to escape from a room. Escape from a room? What? What is this nonsense?
