During the Welcome to Hogwarts event at the Sylvan Lake Municipal Library on Sept. 7, participating children went out to gather ingredients from the green beside the library for a potion. The children participating in the event made potions, played quidditch and were sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses. Photo by Megan Roth/Sylvan Lake News.
