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.
