Congratulations you’ve been accepted into Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry! But wait, your letter says you need robes, wands, and other unusual things. Baxter Memorial Library invites you to follow in Harry Potter's footsteps as you walk through the streets of Diagon Alley where you'll find many of the wizarding world's most famous establishments. First stop at Gringotts Bank to pick up your bag of galleons.  You will need the goblin gold to make your magical purchases for the evening! If you didn’t receive your acceptance letter through Owl Post, you can pick it up at Flourish and Blotts and sign it with a quill. Browse the shelves but don’t buy Death Omens: What to Do When You Know the Worst Is Coming, it’s enough to frighten anyone to death.  Proceed to Madam Malkin’s Robes for all Occasions to try on wizarding attire and snap a picture in your new Hogwarts finery. Did you know that if you develop your film in the right potion the pictures will move?  Ollivanders is offering a wand making workshop for young wizards and the Leaky Cauldron will have refreshments. You’ll need them after a long afternoon browsing!  All the shops in Diagon Alley have banded together and are sponsoring our third annual trivia contest to test your knowledge of the wizarding world. Good luck contestants! Winners will receive a swag bag filled with Harry Potter goodies.
