Create your own Harry Potter inspired beverages

Harry Potter is turning the big 4-0 this year and, although we can't celebrate together at the library, you can still celebrate his birthday at home with these fun drink ideas. These drinks are great for both kids and adults. You can create these delicious drinks and have them ready for the Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry facebook live event on July 31st at 2pm. In order to participate in the exciting online MSWW events this year, you must register online here starting July 31st. 

Be sure to place all of the Harry Potter books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs on hold as well!
