The magic of Harry Potter has cast its spell on youngsters at Great Yarmouth Library.
Last Thursday the library held an Harry Potter Night celebration, which included a barn owl from Fritton Owl Sanctuary, smoothie bike based potions classes, a wanted wizard photo booth and a spellbinding treasure hunt around the library.
Children were also taught how to write and cast spells to encourage positive thinking.
More than 100 children and young people and families from across Yarmouth, Gorleston, Caister and Martham attended.
Many children dressed up in their best wizarding robes to join in with the fun.
