The pop-up version of the Blue Baboon Books mobile truck opened this weekend at NewMarket Square.

Last month, owner Sara Ornelas shared her plans for the store, which she hopes will become permanent.

The store is mainly a children’s and young adult bookstore, but there are some adult titles as well.

Ornelas timed her grand opening with Harry Potter’s birthday and held a couple of wand-making classes to celebrate.

“It was just, like, mobbed,” she says. “It was awesome.”
