Harry Potter Book Night shares the magic

With the wave of a wand, the Sir Edward "Weary" Dunlop Learning Centre was recently transformed into Hogwart’s Hall as part of the Harry Potter Book Night. Inspired by J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series, the library was refurbished with magical decorations, costumes and wizardry activities.

More than 50 students and parents dressed up as witches, wizards or characters from the Harry Potter novels, including Lord Voldemort, Albus Dumbledore and Hermione Granger, to take part in brain teaser games, a trivia quiz, treasure hunts and Harry Potter themed entertainment.

"We all thoroughly enjoyed the library’s magical and memorable Harry Potter night, which helped to pass on the magic of J.K. Rowling’s books," said Library Coordinator, Deb Saunders.

"There were lots of wizarding fun, spellicious cakes and magic on offer."

"A replica Ford Anglia as seen in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets made a special guest appearance, thanks to local identity Margaret Nolan."

Benalla Library staff congratulated all participants and contributors who helped to make the event a magical success.

"Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in our spellbinding Harry Potter event," Ms Saunders.
