Blog, News and Happenings

I am so ready for the newest Disney Pixar movie.  Coco looks so . . . vibrant.  And the music!  Oh, the music! 
Listen to a snippet of The World Es Mi Familia.
Listen to a snippet of Remember Me.

"Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history."

Hoover City Schools (and other local school districts) are off for the entire week of Thanksgiving. If you're looking for something to do, look no further than Hoover Library. We have three thematic programs that week, and you don't even have to register to be part of the fun!
