You and your family members of all ages have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Lake Bluff Library campus. Your term at Hogwarts will include brewing a slimy concoction in Potions, transforming an ordinary craft into an extraordinary work of art in Transfiguration, puzzles and tricks in Charms, and, of course, testing your wits in a Triwizard Tournament. Then at 8:00pm, we will convene for a small reception honoring the birth of Hogwarts' most famous student, Harry Potter, and a raffle drawing for a Potter Prize. Other fun activities will be available throughout the week. Term begins August 2. We await your registration by owl no later than July 26. (And "by owl" we mean "register online or by calling." Regrettably, we do not have the resources to care for owls).
