WHEN I THINK OF A LIBRARY I THINK OF BOOKS. Now I like to read, so this is not a bad thought. But when I think of the HOOVER LIBRARY, I think of much, much more.
The Hoover Library is part of the Jefferson County library system, so they not only have all the books you will see on the shelves, but they can get you any book within the Jefferson County system. They also have video tapes, so you can check out movies for FREE. Free is a really good price.
During the summer the Hoover Library has a great children's reading program and they have entertainment on a regular basis so you have activities you can bring your children to for free - to keep them from being too bored. During the year, they have weekly age appropriate storytelling so your preschoolers can get to enjoy reading at an early age. They also have computer classes for adults.
Below the floor that has all the books on it, you will find a theatre. In the hallway leading up to the theatre there is art on exhibit. The pieces on display are from local artists and the exhibits change monthly.
One Monday a month, they show a movie at 2:00 in the afternoon and 6:30 at night. This is a great time to have an afternoon or night out with friends. The movie in August which will show on the 28th is Field of Dreams. Check out the full movie schedule here.
The state of the art theatre is comfortable and seats 250 people so all the seats are good. The Hoover Library Theatre is in its 17th season. The 2008/2009 performance season has just been announced and tickets go on sale starting August 22, 2008.
