The Jefferson Parish Library’s Harry Potter Yule Fest


The Jefferson Parish Library’s Harry Potter Yule Fest is back with a twist. Instead of a one-day event, it will be a month-long experience featuring ongoing activities and grab-n-go crafts.

Starting Nov. 29 and running until Jan. 6, 2022, activities can be completed to earn points toward Harry Potter-themed raffle prizes.


These activities include: 

  • Weekly Harry Potter grab-n-go craft kits. Patrons may request kits online and have them sent to any library location. Weekly kits will feature one of the following each week: wands, potions, Patronus scratch art, and a Marauder's Map ornament.
  • A weekly downloadable craft that will be made available at the same time as the grab-n-go crafts
  • A Harry Potter activity book with puzzles and coloring sheets that can be downloaded or picked from a Jefferson Parish library branch
  • Snitch Scavenger Hunt – find the hidden snitches and decipher the magical spell.
  • House Elf on the Shelf Hunt – Find the hidden Dobby and earn a secret code word
  • Photo booth — Harry Potter-themed photo booths will be available at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon Ave., Metairie, and the West Bank Regional Library, 2750 Manhattan Blvd., Harvey, as well as other larger branch libraries. Patrons can pose in Harry Potter photo booth and tag us on social media - #HPYule2021.
