The Sylvan Lake Municipal Library was transformed into Hogwarts on Thursday.

Students of all ages gathered in the Great Hall at the Welcome to Hogwarts party on Sept. 5 to enjoy some butter beer and treats.

Afterwards the students dove into their first magic class where they collected ingredients for a potion.

They also got to decorate their wands and play a game of Quidditch.

The Welcome to Hogwarts party kicks off the library’s Hogwarts Reading Club competition, which started Sept. 1 and will run until June 20, 2020.
