General Information

As students head back to school, the Hoover Public Library wants to make sure that all children and teens have the most important school supply of all -- a library card. Owning a library card provides students with the resources they need to compete academically. Public libraries provide students free access to databases of news articles, encyclopedias and test preparation materials, as well as homework help and resources. In addition, public libraries are the number one access point for free Internet, an important resource for families without access at home.

A library card is serious business, but it's also an opportunity for fun! Library card holders of all ages can get their hands on tons of fantastic books, movies, video games . . . the list goes on and on.

Did you know that the Hoover Library has meeting rooms that are available for not-for-profit groups? If you are a Hoover resident and a member of a 501c3 organization, then you can reserve our community rooms once per month, free of charge, for your groups' meetings.

Are you wondering if your group qualifies? You can read our policies, or you call 739-7124 and find our more. Examples of groups who meet here include book groups, outdoors groups, hobby groups, and community groups.

We are pleased to announce that we have just added 124 new, updated, full color Boy Scout Merit Badge books to our collection! If you're in the library, drop by the nonfiction section in the Kid Zone, specifically 369.43 BOY, to see for yourself. If you want to see what we have available before you make a trip to the Hoover Public Library, simply do a word search in our online catalog for either BOY SCOUTS or MERIT BADGE. We still have some older merit badge titles in our collection. If the call number is followed by the word NEW, you know it's one of our recent additions.
