The global pandemic – novel coronavirus has been showing its effect on the world. While the people are in quarantine at home, their lockdown led them binge-watching various series and movies on the streaming devices.
To add some more fun, Harry Potter is here to lift your mood. JK Rowling, the head of Wizarding World has launched a new website, Harry Potter at Home, to escape from the current situation.
JK Rowling Happy With The Move
“Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic,” the author shared a tweet, sharing that she was happy to launch Harry Potter at Home.

“We’re casting a Banishing Charm on boredom!” the site added on the front page.
It was made in cooperation with publishers Bloomsbury and Scholastic, the digital hub houses which is a free collection of many child-friendly activities such as puzzles, videos, quizzes, illustrations, articles, creative ideas, and many other things as well. As per the Wizarding World team, these things will help anyone to overcome the boredom.
Moreover, Rowling has joined hands with the OverDrive online library system, which has been allowing their members to complimentary access to an e-book version of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in over 20 languages through the end of April.
Along with this, fans can now listen to the first book of the fantasy series on Audible for free that too in six different languages (English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese) as part of the Harry Potter there.
However, this is not the first time that JK Rowling has helped with her services in this global pandemic. Last month when the global pandemic left the schools shut down worldwide, she gave the license for teachers to share videos of themselves in any closed educational platform or any secure network of school to read stories of the Harry Potter books.
