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.

Many schools in the greater Huntington Beach area use a measured reading program as a way to track students' comprehension and reading levels. The Huntington Beach Public Library doesn't provide printed reading level information for these programs on its materials, but it is easy to find online! We've mapped out the links to three of the most common reading programs used by our local public schools. Use the links below to find the reading level for a book you are interested in reading for school credit. To find out whether your school participates in a reading program, and which program they use, contact your school librarian.
