R.B. Hoover Branch Library

1428 Wooded Acres Drive
Waco, TX 76710



The R. B. Hoover Library originally opened in 1967 in the Lake Air Mall and was known as the Lake Air Station. Shortly after opening it was renamed for Brad Hoover, a longtime library supporter and board member.

The library operated very successfully in this location for 34 years, moving and enlarging several times within the mall. With the sale of the mall in 2001 and its proposed demolition, the library was forced to relocate. With the support of the city administration and the Friends of the Library, the library was able to move to its new location in January 2002 with three times its former space. For years the Hoover Library has been the busiest of the community libraries and that trend continues. The spring and summer of 2002 have seen an amazing support from the community for this new library.
