The Great Lakes, also called the Great Lakes of North America, are a series of large interconnected freshwater lakes in the upper mid-east region of North America that connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence River.  That is a LONG WAY from here.  And there are still state-to-state travel restrictions due to COVID.  But you can still find out what makes these lakes great with a series of virtual field trips presented by Great Lakes Now.  Learn more about the importance of coastal wetlands, the danger of algal blooms, and take a deep dive into Lake Sturgeon.  You might also want to take a peek at this TEDEd video and this How Stuff Works article.

Teen Volunteers

March 31, 2020
During this time of staying safe and distancing from one another the Hoover Public Library will not be accepting applications for teen volunteers.  We hope to bring back this wonderful program in the future.  As circumstances change and as we make plans for the future, we will update this page with new information as it is forthcoming.

We look forward to seeing you again and wish for the good health of all our citizens.
