Harry Potter Book Night success
About 40 young witches, wizards and other magical folk took part in Torfaen Libraries’ celebration of national Harry Potter Book Night this week.
Children in Blaenavon and Cwmbran libraries began the evening by being placed into their houses by the Sorting Hat, after which they made their own wands, created mythical monsters, and took part in a hunt for magical items.
Dressed as their favourite characters, they also spent time discussing their favourite moments from the books.
Bettina Robinson, senior library assistant, said: “Harry Potter Book Night is now in its second year and it is always a delight to see children so enthused and excited about books and reading.
“This is the first event we have held Blaenavon Library’s new home at the World Heritage Centre, and we couldn’t have had a better location. The building is itself an old school and with an old fashioned school room, was a perfect stand in for Hogwarts.
“Both events were a great success, and a great opportunity for children to take part in this national event.”
The event was one of hundreds taking place across the UK organised by Bloomsbury, the publisher of the Harry Potter books.
