Listen to "Sound Off" on WRKO AM 660 about issues and events that concern veterans.

This is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted.
After the success of Hobbit Day, the library will once again host an interactive movie experience, this time showing Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, with a Trivia contest, Prizes and all sorts of food and fun, with an intermission in the middle. You’re welcome to come dressed as your favorite Hogwarts character! **Registration is Required for this event.

Forced to spend his summer holidays with his muggle relations, Harry Potter gets a real shock when he gets a surprise visitor: Dobby the house-elf, who warns Harry Potter against returning to Hogwarts, for terrible things are going to happen. Harry decides to ignore Dobby’s warning and continues with his pre-arranged schedule. But at Hogwarts, strange and terrible things are indeed happening: Harry is suddenly hearing mysterious voices from inside the walls, muggle-born students are being attacked, and a message scrawled on the wall in blood puts everyone on his/her guard–“The Chamber Of Secrets Has Been Opened. Enemies Of The Heir, Beware.” Sponsored by the Needham Free Public Library - Costumes welcomed.
