JK Rowling launches Harry Potter at Home

JK Rowling has launched a new digital hub dedicated to all things Harry Potter, which she hopes will keep young children occupied during the coronavirus pandemic.

The hub includes craft videos, fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and more for both first-time readers and those who are already fans of the wizarding world. The site, which is free to access, proclaims: “We’re casting a Banishing Charm on boredom!”

Plus, Audible is making Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone free to stream during April. The audiobook is available on the Audible Stories platform, whilst the eBook and audiobook can be borrowed in more than 20 different languages worldwide via the OverDrive library services.

Rowling announced the launch of the new site in a tweet:
