Willy Wonka visits Mentor Library for his birthday party

It’s the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so we threw a birthday party for that clandestine chocolatier Willy Wonky on Saturday at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

Kids made their own candy concoctions, tested their Wonkavision and got a taste of our chocolate river. Then Mr. Wonka himself appeared!

He even bore gifts. One lucky child found a golden ticket in their Wonka Bar that provided him with four tickets to the Fine Art Association’s performance of Willy Wonka, which runs from Nov. 28 to Dec. 21.

We want to thank the Fine Arts Association and Willy Wonka for dropping by!

Even if you missed the party, you should check out the video. In it, Mr. Wonka explains how the Federal Aviation Administration (the other FAA) governs Fizzy Lifting Drink and what became of the ill-fated and iller named Hornswozzie candy.
