Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Vestavia Hills Library is a non-profit group of citizens who believe that a good library is essential to the cultural, educational and economic well-being of Vestavia Hills. The Friends work to assist the Board of Trustees and the Library Director; to promote increased knowledge of the functions, resources, services and needs of the library; to stimulate volunteer service; to encourage gifts and memorials for the library; to help the library procure funds for items that are not included in the regular budget and to sponsor cultural and related programs for the community.
