Professor Sprout’s Mandrake Cultivation Class @ Downtown Library - Cedar Rapids
May 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Cultivate a mandrake with Pomona Sprout, Hogwart’s renowned Herbology Professor, then take it home to help ward off petrification!

Celebrate Harry Potter Week at the Cedar Rapids Public Library!

Professor Sprout’s Mandrake Cultivation Class in Beems Auditorium B gives wizards (and muggles) a chance to cultivate a mandrake to take home. As you know, mature mandrake root is essential to mandrake restorative potion, which could cure you if you encounter petrification. Slight chance of immature mandrakes on premises; students responsible for their own hearing protection.

Professor Pomona Sprout teaches Herbology at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Wizarding Wand Workshop @ Downtown Library - Cedar Rapids
May 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Celebrate Harry Potter Week at the Cedar Rapids Public Library!

Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Diagon Alley, is providing all the materials for this magical workshop.  The complexities of choosing materials are left to the materials themselves, as they will speak to students who truly focus their magical powers.

“The wand chooses the wizard. That much has always been clear to those of us who have studied wandlore… If you are any wizard at all you will be able to channel your magic through almost any instrument. The best results, however, must always come where there is the strongest affinity between wizard and wand. These connections are complex. An initial attraction, and then a mutual quest for experience, the wand learning from the wizard, the wizard from the wand.” – Mr. Ollivander
