The City of Perth library in Western Australia recently tried to organise a Harry Potter event.

Activities included learning about owls from birdkeepers and making potions with local scientists. The event's Facebook page specified that it was only for 12- to18-year-olds.

Though 11,000 people expressed interest in the event, many adult fans were not impressed by the age limit.

After all the kerfuffle, the library ended up postponing the event to an unspecified date in the future.
