Wizards & Wands Festival

Experience the spellbinding magic of your library. A night of otherworldly adventure awaits you. Stay tuned for more about the newly re-imagined event full of magic that is currently being planned for 2021.

Say hi to Hilda the Dragon! 

October 1-31, 2020 - This 30-foot, smoke-breathing dragon will be perched on the library’s roof, keeping a watchful eye on State Street. Drawn to the magic of the library, she breathes smoke and roars every 30 minutes from 5-9pm.

Designed and created by The Point at Otterbein University. Sponsored by the Friends of the Westerville Public Library.
