9th Annual Harry Potter Book Night

Feb 5, 2024 2:17 PM



The 9th Annual Harry Potter Book Night hosted by FSU's Children's Literature Centre (CLC) was held on Feb. 3 in the Lane University Center and the Lewis J. Ort Library on Frostburg's campus. The young wizards started their day running through the 9 ¾ Platform to travel to Hogwarts Castle. Once they arrived there, they visited Diagon Alley and received their wands at Olivander's Wand Shop and crafts from Quality Quidditch Supplies, Flourish & Blotts, and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. Additionally, at Diagon Alley, the young wizards were sorted into one of four houses - Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. They also attended four wizard classes including Herbology, Potions, Divinations, and Charms and played a game of Quidditch. During their mystical time at Diagon Alley, the young wizards used their wands and recited spells to make tables spin, spiders crawl, shake the whomping willow tree, and make letters fly out of a fireplace. The day would not have been a success without the support of FSU students, staff, volunteers, and sponsors! We cannot wait for another remarkable Harry Potter Book Night in 2025!
