During these unprecedented times, Wizarding World is bringing Harry Potter home to it’s readers.
Now you can experience the magic of Harry Potter more than ever!
Harry Potter at Home is an online Potter Hub that was created to keep children entertained and educated during the coronavirus pandemic. The hub will include articles, puzzles and videos, made available by publishers Scholastic and Bloomsbury.
From the Wizarding World website:
Here’s everything you need to know about Harry Potter At Home: some new ways to bring the magic closer to you, all specially created by different members of our wide Wizarding World family.
For over twenty years now, Hogwarts has been an escape for all – for readers and fans, young and old. During the strange times we now find ourselves in, we want to welcome you back to Hogwarts, where you will find a friendly retreat for you, your family and those you are caring for.
Over 500 million Harry Potter books have been sold across the globe, so it’s comforting to know many homes already have a door to the wizarding world waiting to be opened once again. And for those who’ve never visited the wizarding world before, welcome!
Our new Harry Potter At Home project is very much a team effort, combining the resources of Harry Potter UK and US publishers Bloomsbury and Scholastic, Pottermore Publishing, leading spoken-word producer and provider Audible, library supplier OverDrive, and of course, our own magic-makers here at WizardingWorld.com.”
J.K. Rowling has also relaxed the copyright permissions on the Harry Potter books, allowing teachers to post read aloud videos of the books.
Also, for the entire month of April, Pottermore Publishing will be teaming up with digital library supplier, OverDrive, to offer the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone, available to check out with no wait time. The e-book and e-audiobook is available in over 20 languages and can be borrowed from participating schools and local libraries. Download Overdrive’s Libby app and Sora app today.
