Best Books Tailgate
2-4-6-8! Which books did we think were great? Find out at our Best Books Tailgate on Tuesday, January 14, 2019 at 4 p.m. Cheer for book talks of our team's favorite titles for kids and teens. Eat terrific tailgating food and win door prizes! (Yes, the prizes are brand new copies of our favorite books!) This event is geared for parents, teachers and fellow librarians, but everyone is welcome. You do not have to register for our tailgate party. Simply follow the stars (and cheers and delicious food smells).
We will post our 2019 Staff Picks list that same week! The list will include picture books, juvenile & teen fiction, and juvenile & teen nonfiction.
Sensory-Friendly Big Screen Movie
The Hoover Public Library is starting to offer unique movie showings where we turn the lights up and the sound down, so you can enjoy your favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. Patrons can move around or exit as needed, and we will have some noise-cancelling headphones available. Our first Sensory Friendly Movie will be shown in the Library Theatre on Friday, January 3, 2020 at 10 a.m. Enjoy Charlotte's Web, E.B. White's charming tale of a spider that befriends a piglet. This 1973 animated feature is rated G and runs 94 minutes. Refreshments will be provided. And, of course, everything is free!
