Wise Owl Book Club

Wise Owl Book Club is a book discussion and activity group just for tweens, ages 8-12. HBPL staff pick excellent books to read, then lead crafts, activities, and discussions based on what the group is reading. The best part? Wise Owl Book Club books are YOURS to keep! While the library is following health & safety guidelines for COVID-19, all Wise Owl Book Club meetings will be held online via Zoom. Upcoming Wise Owl Book club picks and meetings are announced through the library's monthly newsletter and the HBPL online calendar. To sign up for the monthly newsletter, click here. To view past club reading & activity guides, click on the Wise Owl logo.

Tween Book Boxes

HBPL's Book Boxes mimic other subscription services like Owlcrate or Loot Crate, but with a fun bookish twist. Each monthly box includes a library book hand-picked to match a reader's preferences, and themed monthly treats like snacks, tea, bookmarks, stationery and more! 30 boxes for Tweens (grades 4–8) will be available each month. Register before the 15th of each month to receive the following month’s box. Book Box quantities are limited; prompt registration is recommended.
