Harry Potter and the Dunbar Library

You’ve read every book. You know what your wand is made out of. You can name all the horcruxes and hallows. Now’s your chance to take part in some library/Harry-Potter-themed fun. First up:

Harry Potter Murder Mystery

During Welcome Week, August 29 – Sept 2, you’re invited to take part in a Harry Potter Murder Mystery at Dunbar Library!

Cho Chang has been murdered and we need YOUR help to solve the case. If the suspects look familiar, it’s because they’re your favorite Harry Potter characters (played by your library staff). Click the photo below for a preview of the game!

How to play:

  • Pick up an instruction sheet at the Circulation Desk during Welcome Week. (Check our calendar for hours.)
  • The game requires you to install the free Aurasma app on your iPhone or Android phone and set up a free account.
  • Use the app to scan posters of the murder suspects, who will give you clues to the instruction sheet and the location of the next poster. Solve the clues and be sure to write down your answers.
  • Complete the final answer sheet and return it to the Circulation Desk and you’ll be entered to win one of three prize packs at Game Night Friday, Sept 2nd, 6:30 – 10:00 p.m.
