Attention all muggles: 

Looking for something to keep you entertained while social distancing? Hogwarts is closed, as well as most shops in Diagon Alley, so muggles and wizards alike are looking for things to do from the comfort of home.

Try this Hogwarts Digital Escape Room where you’ll find yourself on your first day at Hogwarts, trapped in a locked room. Solve the puzzles to get back to your common room safely.

Download the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery App to be a student at Hogwarts.  Learn spells, play some Quidditch, and help solve a mystery! Or download Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for a magical AR experience.

Wizarding World has many quizzes to test your Harry Potter knowledge. Just starting to get to know Harry, Ron and Hermione? Try this beginner quiz. If you consider yourself a Harry Potter expert, try this quiz.

Do you belong in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin? Make a free Wizarding World account to get yourself sorted.  You can also find your wand and your patronus by answering a few questions about what kind of witch or wizard you are.

Want to visit Hogsmeade or see Hogwarts? Use Google Earth to walk the streets of Hogsmead. Or take a ride on Hagrid’s motorcycle!

Check out J.K. Rowling’s early drawings of Hogwarts as well as first drafts and synopses, all available through The British Library’s Harry Potter: A History of Magic Exhibit.  The Exhibition is currently free to visit online!

Last but not least, treat yourself to a glass of butterbeer or one of these Harry Potter inspired treats!

Don’t forget, you can read, re-read, or listen to any of the Harry Potter series on the Libby app through downloadlibrary!
