Friends of the Library History


In June of 1983 the Alabaster Public Library moved from its cramped quarters in the basement of Municipal Annex to its present location on the corner of First Avenue West and Ninth Street. The beautiful new library was dedicated on June 26, 1983 as the Albert L. Scott Library in memory of the late Albert L. Scott, whose widow, Caroline, donated the land for the library.

Incorporation


Earlier that year, Gladys Harper, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Alabaster Public Library, asked Reba Hatcher, a library volunteer, to help form a Friends of the Alabaster Public Library organization in Alabaster. Reba, along with others interested in helping the library, did just that, and on March 31, 1983, the Friends of the Alabaster Public Library was incorporated.

Presidents


Reba Hatcher served as the first president. Other presidents have included:
  • Steve Abbott
  • Lora Bair
  • Stephanie Billings
  • Steve Fournier
  • Rose Ellen Hankins
  • Stephanie Johnson
  • Beth McCandless
  • Harriet Meeks
  • Judy Mosely
  • Claire Owens
  • Judy Wood

Accomplishments


Over the years, the Friends have raised and donated money to buy books, reference materials, supplies and to pay for special programs and activities for all ages. During the year the Friends help to keep the spirit of the seasons with beautiful wreaths for the doors and decorating the library with colorful poinsettias during the holidays.
