Celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with “Harry’s Hogwarts Holiday”, an “Experience the Book” party at the Greenfield Public Library on Saturday, December 28 from 4 to 5:30.
This will be the tenth in this series of events, and the fourth one with costumed characters from J. K. Rowling’s world of wizards and magic. This time, Hagrid is throwing a holiday party with the Muggles to cheer up poor Harry, who as you may remember is at school while most of the students from Wizarding families have gone home. With Hermione as his party planning consultant, Hagrid has planned a celebration for Harry and his friends at the Greenfield Public Library. Trim a tree, sing the wizards’ version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, and hear Dumbledore’s recitation of “The Night Before Christmas” as familiar characters act out the story in their unique way. Enter the costume contest, judged by some of your favorite Hogwarts professors, and hear the results while eating Hagrid’s very special pizza recipe in the LeVanway Meeting Room.
You must sign up at the library’s children’s desk to participate, and space is limited. This free event is suggested for ages 8 and up. For more information call Kay Lyons at (413) 772-1544 ext. 5.
All aboard!! A beautiful handmade wooden train set could be rolling down the track to you for the holidays! Check it out at the Greenfield Public Library.
Purchase your $1 raffle tickets at the Greenfield Public Library for a chance to win. Drawing will be held on December 21st. Don't miss your chance to win. Get your tickets before the train leaves the station for its holiday destination!
