Friends of the Hoover Public Library

Thanks to a small group of energetic and determined Hoover residents the FRIENDS was established in 1982. They recognized the need for a library in the rapidly expanding city of Hoover and the rest is history.

FRIENDS have fun! FRIENDS have great programs! FRIENDS are fascinating people!

Join and you’ll be glad you did.


The Friends are on Facebook!
