Event Description

Celebrate Harry Potter Week at the Cedar Rapids Public Library!

Ollivander's Wand Shop, Diagon Alley, is providing all the materials for this magical workshop. The complexities of choosing materials are left to the materials themselves, as they will speak to students who truly focus their magical powers.

"The wand chooses the wizard. That much has always been clear to those of us who have studied wandlore... If you are any wizard at all you will be able to channel your magic through almost any instrument. The best results, however, must always come where there is the strongest affinity between wizard and wand. These connections are complex. An initial attraction, and then a mutual quest for experience, the wand learning from the wizard, the wizard from the wand." - Mr. Ollivander
