Harry Potter Book Night
We celebrated Harry Potter Book Night at the library on Thursday 4th February 2016! The theme this year was 'A Night of Spells', we started off the evening with the sorting hat ceremony, we then played the memory charm game where we gave children 2 minutes to memorise the contents of a table. Next we had a treasure hunt around the library to find all of the ingredients to make a polyjuice potions and we finished off with a quiz. Every child who attended also left with some owl post! We'd like to thank everyone who came for making it a truely magical evening!
