Library/Restricted Section

Restricted Section

The Restricted Section is an area in the Hogwarts Library upstairs from the main library and only accessible to students with permission from a professor; in order to enter, they must present a signed note from a professor. Some of the books in the library are chained to the shelves, which would suggest some of them are particularly valuable. The books within the Restricted Section typically discuss the Dark Arts or other information not for the general public or young children. They may be studied by older students for Defense Against the Dark Arts.
