Seanahan: I think that the word for a place where spells are kept is grimoire. This invented 'word' was a play on the real word grimoire and the Brothers Grimm.

I've typically heard this used as black grimmoire, to describe a place where evil secrets are kept, or spells for necromancy.
A chest where fairy stories are kept.
