Not everyone thinks of summer as a time to go to school.
And this year, a select few even have an opportunity to join the Hogwarts staff.
“We need four to five volunteers for Friday and 10-12 volunteers for Saturday,” said Michelle Callihan, Granite Falls managing librarian.
Friday volunteers are needed from 2-6 p.m. and will help set up the various activities. On Saturday, volunteers are needed from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. They will help with crowd control, food service, staff the activity tables and information booth and assist with clean-up.
Prospective volunteers should be age 14 and older and express interest by sending an email to Christine Stansfield at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 26.
This is the second year for the library creating a Hogwarts Summer School. The full day of enchanting Harry Potter-related activities includes making wands and letting the sorting hat place you into your house. There also will be a special Defense Against the Dark Arts Demonstration with “auror” and magician, Brian Ledbetter. Harry Potter-themed costumes are encouraged.
