The Tehachapi Branch Library celebrated its one-year anniversary in its new location with a spectacular Hogwarts event on Dec. 8.

More than 150 wizards and witches of all ages, many in full dress, were sorted into their Houses, received a wand and attended a variety of classes and demos including Charms, Potions, Herbology, History of Magic (trivia), Care of Magical Creatures and Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Attendees also hunted for Horcruxes in a scavenger hunt, and then attended the Yule ball in the courtyard with cake and butter beer.

A drive was held to collect new socks for the Bakersfield Rescue Mission. Stay tuned for more fun events in the upcoming year.
