Books for All!

Audible

Students can instantly stream a wide variety of books in six different languages for free for the duration of school closures.  These are first-rate titles with professional narrators.

Harry Potter - Wizarding World

On the digital hub, readers of all ages and their families can access Harry Potter-related activities and free downloads. Through April, users can get free audiobook and ebook versions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Crafts, quizzes and other activities will be available on the hub and through an associated newsletter, all to be updated weekly on “Wizarding Wednesdays.” 

You can listen to the first Harry Potter audiobook in a choice of six languages—English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese, via the Audible Stories Collection. American readers take note: it’s the Stephen Fry edition of the audiobook and not the Jim Dale version—an opportunity for a whole new listening experience.
