Welcome to the Hoover Library
Since opening our doors in October of 1983, we have worked to change the way you think about libraries.
The Hoover Public Library seeks to reinvent the way communities view libraries. As the heart and soul of the Hoover community, we are more than just a library. We’re the place you come to meet your friends, experience live theater, peruse art, listen to music, entertain your children, learn about new technology, seek job searching assistance, explore your interests, find good book recommendations and much, much more. We seek to grow our patronage by offering an unparalleled customer experience. When you have a question, we want the library to be the first thing that comes to mind.
