As The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey continues to rack up box office dollars this weekend, the Stratford Library is celebrating the works of J.R.R. Tolkien with a party in which children will go on a quest, write their name in runes, play a board game and other hobbit-related activities. As with every hobbit party, cake and presents will be served to the guests.
The Stratford Library, 2203 Main St., Stratford. Sat., Jan. 19, 2:30-4 p.m. Free, registration required. (203) 385-4164, stratfordlibrary.org.
