Happy Harry-ween!

Photo 2015-10-30, 12 16 15 PMThank you so much to everyone who came out for UBC Library’s Harry Potter-themed Halloween Party!

The party kicked off with sweet and salty snacks, hot drinks, and a get-to-know-your-classmates scavenger hunt game. Prizes, including an Alivan’s wand and a gift certificate donated by Just Imagine Fun Clothing, Costumes, and Dance Gear, were awarded for the most authentic and the most creative costumes. Prizes were presented by Associate University Librarian for Research Services Lea Starr (a.k.a. Bellatrix Lestrange). Guests enjoyed board games, a puzzle, and a “make your own wand” craft station, as well as a popular “Have You Seen This Wizard” photo booth. Guests were also able to add to a “What Does Harry Potter Mean to You?” mural. Here are some of the contributions:

“The 3rd book was the first book I can remember reading and falling in love with and it made me want to become an author.”
“A tale of belonging and love”
“A love for libraries”
“A lifelong love of reading”
“Overcoming life’s obstacles”
“Figuring out who you are and how you fit within the world”
“Hogwarts will always be there for those who need it.”
