-Students come here read, study, or just relax. The library is vast, full of all sorts of books from all around the world. There isn't a book, CD or movie that isn't in this incredible library. The smell of warm books always fills the air. Comfortable chairs and seating areas provide ample study room for students. There are several private study rooms with noise-reduction spells on them as well, giving students the opportunity to work on group projects without disturbing other. The library is massive, with thirteen different floors above ground and several below. Several librarians work on each floor and library pages work around the clock to keep the books tidy and in order. The librarians are friendly and well-informed and are just as valuable resources as the books, movies, CDs, and more housed within the walls.+Students come here read, study, or just relax, but it is also open to the general public.

 The library houses many old tomes on magic that are in fragile condition. The school is working to digitize and preserve these books, but it is a work in process completed by library employees and student volunteers. These books may only be read, in the Special Collections section of the library, with special permission. Some of these books are cursed and require special care to handle without injury or property damage - these books are kept inside of individually-sealed magic-proof boxes inside of another magically insulated room inside of special collections - these precautions are in place more to keep the books in, rather than keeping people out. The library houses many old tomes on magic that are in fragile condition.
