On Thursday, the muggles were treated to a wand-making workshop. On Friday, the non-magic youngsters visiting Sawyer Free Library can take in a “pro-literacy” music concert.
Indie American rockers Harry and the Potters will pay a visit to the Gloucester library, 2 Dale Ave., for a free, high-energy show on Friday, June 21, at 7 p.m. The concert closes out the library's Harry Potter Week.
The wizard rockers are inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, and they perform wearing the Hogwarts uniform. They are celebrating the release of their new album, “Lumos,” which was recorded in Gloucester.
The Sawyer Free Library show kicks off the band’s tour of public libraries across the country. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
On Monday and Thursday, children took part in an electronic wand building project for ages 6 and up and a glow stick wand craft for children ages 3 and up. On Tuesday, young patrons tested their Potter knowledge in a trivia contest, and on Wednesday tested three recipes for butterbeer.
