School’s out this Friday, Oct. 16, for NEOEA Day, so why not spend the day at Hogwarts?
For one day only, Mentor Public Library’s turning its Main Branch into Harry Potter’s wizarding school.
Kids (from ages eight to 13) can take a magic class with Mr. Zap or a potions course with Ms. Kim. They’ll also be able to make their own wand and enjoy a snack in the Main Hall.
The program is free and open to the public, but parents need to register their kids for it beforehand. They can do so online at Mentor Library’s website or by calling the library at 440-255-8811 ext. 221.
Other Halloween events the library has upcoming include:
- a Zombie Party for teens on Monday, Oct. 12, at its Lake Branch. Teens can just bring themselves. The library will provide the zombie makeup, “brains,” fog machine and laser show.
- a Ghost Hunting talk on Monday, Oct. 12, at its Main Branch. Join members of the Banded Spirits group as they talk about their adventures ghost hunting.
- a special Goosebumps-themed party on Monday, Oct. 26, at its Lake Branch.
- Mr. Dennis’s annual Halloween puppet show on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at its Headlands Branch.
