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.

Friends Book Store

The Friends of the Vestavia Hills Library Book Store, located on the main floor, offers a large selection of previously owned fiction, non-fiction (cooking, travel, religion, etc.), children’s books, CDs and DVDs, and paperbacks. Come in and browse or make a donation! All donations and proceeds from sales benefit the library.
