Friends of the Library

Friends are community members who believe that a good library is essential to the cultural, educational and economic well-being of Vestavia Hills.

The Friends of the Vestavia Hills Library is a non-profit group of citizens who work together 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.


All are invited to enjoy fellowship and programs in the Community Room at 10 am on 4th Thursdays September through May (exceptions: November & December — call library for dates). December and May luncheon meetings begin at 11:30 am.
