The Friends of the Children's Library (FOTCL) is an all-volunteer group that supports the Children's Department of the Huntington Beach Public Library. We sponsor a variety of educational and informative activities for children in our community throughout the year: monthly shows (ballets, musical performances, magic shows, and plays), an Authors Festival, a Festival of Folktales in June (which kicks off the library's Summer Reading Program), and a Holiday Tree Trimming Party in December.

We meet the 1st Friday of each month at 9 AM in Room B in the lower level of the
Central Library (summer scheduyle may vary). For more information on joining our group, please click on the link below for our current brochure and application.
