Result: Wizard Library


Your Wizard Library is full of books on spells, transfiguration, potions and stuff we really don't understand. But if you're a wizard or interested in magic, this is the place to be. It has a secret door so you'll need to learn how to pass through it. Leaflets on request.

Result: Local Library


Your Local Library is exactly just that: fact, fiction, DVDs and a place to relax and read! It's nice and warm and a great place to hang out (if you don't make any noise).

Result: Space Library


Your Space Library is full of books on stars, planets and how to repair rockets. It's also in space, so if people are planning to visit, pack sandwiches! And a space helmet.

Result: Minecraft Library


Your Minecraft Library is full of books on how to get ahead in the popular building game. There's no fiction or factual books. Just Minecraft knowledge pressed and printed into big, blocky hardbacks!
