Hoover Library begins makeover

Hoover Library

The library will have limited services during the makeover.

The Hoover Library is beginning a “Library Makeover” project Aug. 3. Only limited library services will be available from Aug. 3 through Sept. 2. The library will be closed Sept. 3-7.

During this project, patrons will be able to check out some materials, return materials, request materials, ask reference questions, use a limited number of public computers, visit the café and bookstore and attend scheduled programs. Many of the library’s books and other materials will not be available for checkout due to the painting and carpeting work taking place in the library.

The library is encouraging patrons to keep Hoover Library items that normally check out for three weeks — books, audiobooks, music CDs, CD rom games, puppets and nonfiction DVDs — until Sept. 8. Popular movies, video games, Playaway Views, preloaded nooks and mobile hotspots, as well as materials from other Jefferson County libraries, will still have their normal loan period.

The Friends of the Library will be unable to accept donated items from Aug. 1 through Sept. 15.

The Library Makeover project will bring an updated color scheme on the main level of the library, new carpet in several areas and contemporary unique computer and study carrels which will provide open and modern work and study spaces. We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to a fresh new look in September.
