J.K. Rowling Launches 'Harry Potter at Home' Online Hub For Bored Kids and Teachers

J.K. Rowling is bringing a little magic to our quarantines. The author of the Harry Potter series has launched an online hub for children, families and teachers who are stuck inside amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The hub, called Harry Potter at Home, comes soon after Rowling relaxed the copyright permission on the Harry Potter books so that teachers could read the beloved stories to their students over video.

It’s at times like this that we could use a little enchantment to whisk us away from the isolation of our quarantines. And with Freeform no longer giving us the trusty Harry Potter weekends and all the Wizarding World theme parks shuttered, online is the next best place to find that magic. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is offering us a “banishing charm” on our boredom with Harry Potter at Home online hub, a new website that will feature “special contributions from Bloomsbury and Scholastic, nifty magical craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!), fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and plenty more for first-time readers, as well as those already familiar with the wizarding world,” according to the website.

Rowling announced the launch of the hub on Wednesday, writing, “Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic, so I’m delighted to launch harrypotterathome.com.”
