Hogwarts Halloween at Blackstone Memorial Library - October 14 & 15
Posted on September 27th, 2017

Branford, Conn.: A Hogwarts Halloween at Blackstone Library happens for one weekend only, on October 14 and 15. Children ages 6 and up can experience a magical time when the library is transformed into Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.

And this year’s souvenir T-Shirt will say, “When in doubt, go to the library.” This line, said in the story by Ron Weasley about Hermione Granger in the book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, was chosen as the winning entry in the Hogwarts T-Shirt Caption Contest. C.J. Brinton, 11, of Bethany, CT, submitted the winning entry.
T-Shirts with the winning caption are available for pre-order ($20), and will be for sale at the door. Pre-ordering is recommended to ensure your desired size is available. Tickets for all four class sessions are still available, though sessions are filling up quickly. To register for A Hogwarts Halloween, visit
If you’ve ever dreamed of visitingHogwarts, walking its hallowed halls, and climbing its winding stairs, this is your chance! All proceeds from A Hogwarts Halloween at Blackstone will support the programs and services offered by the James Blackstone Memorial Library.

 A Hogwarts Halloween for Kids
Children attending one of four available daytime sessions will get the feeling they truly have entered the halls of Hogwarts. Upon arrival, children will be escorted by Prefects to the Great Hall, where they will be greeted by Professor McGonagall. From there, attendees will take classes in Charms, Potions, and Divination. This year’s school session also involves an escape challenge – Dolores Umbridge has been known to lock an entire class out of the Hogwarts building and onto the Hogwarts grounds. It will be up to each class to work together to solve the clues and find the magic key that opens the door back into Hogwarts proper! And, of course, no one will leave without their wand from Ollivander’s Wand Shop personally matched by Ollivander.
These sessions are drop-off only, with Prefects escorting the children through their 2 hours of classes. Admission is $30 per child. Costumes are encouraged. For children ages 6 and up. Visit to reserve your child’s place.

Choose from four available sessions:
Saturday, October 14, 10am–12 pm or 1 pm–3 pm
Sunday, October 15, 10am–12 pm or 1 pm–3 pm
