Harry Potter fans have a spellbinding time

Harry and Hermione, aka Finlay Stuart and Emily Baillot, encounter an owl.

YOUNG fans of the Harry Potter series were treated to a magical experience when a special wizarding evening was held at a Highland library.

Fun-loving librarians in Fortrose transformed their world of books into a spellbinding one with decorations, costumes and activities suitable for little wizards and witches.

As well as a reading of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, 22 children at the library were treated to a craft session where they made potions and magical keys.

They also enjoyed some special treats such as butterbeer and sherbet lemons – a Hogwarts favourite.

Librarian Sya Bruce said: "Thank you to every witch, wizard and muggle who joined us for a very special Harry Potter book night.

"We stepped on to Platform 9 and 3/4 to enjoy making flying keys, bottles of Felix Felices, Veritaserum and Amortentia before settling down with some butterbeer and lemon sherbets to enjoy a reading of The Boy Who Lived in our very own Gryffindor common room.

"Thank you to everyone who made the evening possible, particularly Fortrose Academy student and ace library volunteer Aisha, who created our beautiful Thunderbird from scratch – a magical talent to be sure."

To complete the evening some of the pupils turned up dressed as Harry Potter with the signature scar and glasses or his pal Hermione, while Heather Macleod (11) wowed the group by dressing as a dementor – one of the evil creatures from the tales.
