Join us for the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.

As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

The release party will begin at 10:00 PM on Saturday, July 30th. The celebration will include face painting, games, trivia, wand-making, a costume contest, drinks, and snacks. Winners of the costume contest, coloring contest, and trivia will be announced at 11:30 PM. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will go on sale at 12:01 AM.

Elephant & Piggie are coming to Browseabout! Join us on July 30th and 31st at 9 AM to meet this hilarious duo that has been delighting young readers for almost ten years.

On Saturday, we'll be reading The Thank You Book, the 25th book in the series and a lso the last. Gerald and Piggie have always been best friends. In this charming conclusion to their saga, Piggie wants to thank EVERYONE. But Gerald is worried Piggie will forget someone very important.

Sunday's selection will be I Really Like Slop. Piggie really likes slop. She likes it so much, she wants Gerald to try some! But can Gerald find the courage to do it? Or will the smell alone be too much to handle?

In addition to the reading, attendees will also do some coloring and create a craft. Elephant & Piggie will also be happy to interact with attendees and pose for pictures! The duration of their stay is not set, so please arrive at the beginning of the event to enjoy all that is being offered.

Story time season is in full swing! Join us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9 AM to listen to a story with Miss Nichole. Every day is a different picture book selection, as well as coloring and an adorable craft to go with it.

Weekend story times are even more exciting! Every Saturday and Sunday, there's either a themed story time or a visit from a story book character.

As a reminder, parking meters in downtown Rehoboth aren't in effect until 10 AM, giving you plenty of time to enjoy these FREE activities for kids. The duration of each event is not set, so please arrive promptly at the start time to enjoy all that is being offered.
