softdomme asked: Hello! Since you want to go to Hogwarts so much here's another library you can visit in a book: in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett there's a school for wizards, and in that library is all the books ever written in any universe but all the books /never/ written. All the half formed concepts or floating ideas are there fully written out exactly as the author would have done if they had continued it. ~Jessica

I love the Discworld series! The Librarian at Unseen University (a former wizard who was turned into an orangutan and now lives in the library) is one of my favorites. It was actually a teen librarian who first encouraged me to read the series. For those of you who haven’t checked it out, you totally should! And if I had to choose between visiting the library at Hogwarts or UU…I’m not sure I could!
