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. Today, the Friends work with library staff to support the mission and goals of the library. They provide support for the library for the library's projects, activities and aquisitions, as well as focus public attention on library services, facilities and needs.
FRIENDS have fun! FRIENDS have great programs! FRIENDS are fascinating people! Join and you’ll be glad you did.
