Fantastic Beasts: We Know Where to Find Them!

fantastic-beasts-hp-sm

We are now less than one month away from the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a new movie set in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World!

As you may or may not know by now, the movie is set in New York City and stars Academy  Award winner Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist Newt Scamander. When Newt gets kicked out of Hogwarts and comes to America, he brings with him a case full of magical beasts that get set loose on the streets of New York. And one week before the movie release, we will have some of our own beasts at Fountaindale! Join us on Saturday, November 12th from 10 AM to 4 PM! But it won’t just be beasts! Oh no! We’ll also have wand crafting, a scavenger hunt, and a Wizard Emporium where you will find all your magical necessities! The whole library will be in on the fun, converting to 1920s New York City for the day. You may even run into a few of your old favorite Harry Potter characters! We are pleased to announce that the schedule is now available! Without further ado:
