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.

I wonder if Fred and George's ageing potion works in reverse...

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