This desk was located in the the library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and was reserved for the school librarian. As such, it was behind this desk that they did a lot of their work, such as preparing the library due date sheets and maintaining overdue records. It was also presumably where the library books was checked out, and to which returned books would be delivered.


During her time occupying the position of Hogwarts librarian, students who entered the library would often find Madam Pince either seated behind or standing nearby this desk, from where she would often shush at those who talked loudly and keep a sharp eye on the students and, more importantly, how they treated the books.

A portrait of Tobias Misslethorpe, the founder of Witch Weekly Magazine, was hanging on the wall to the left of the desk.
