The Mountain Brook Library Foundation

The Mountain Brook Library Foundation (MBLF) was formed in 1993 to provide a future source of income for the Emmet O'Neal Library. The Mountain Brook Library Foundation Board was formed and, through the work of many dedicated volunteers, raised over $8 million in a public/private fundraising effort for the current library building.

The Mountain Brook Library Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization. The most recent IRS form 990 for the Mountain Brook Library Foundation is now available for download. For any questions regarding the Mountain Brook Library Foundation, please contact Library Director Lindsy Gardner at (205) 445-1192 or


Funds are always needed, and all citizens interested in donating are urged to contact Pam at (205) 445-1155 or

We are currently transitioning to a new donation management program and are unable to accept online or credit card donations until the new system is in place (around March 23, 2020). Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.

Donations may be made in honor or in memory of a loved one.

All donors of $25 or more will receive an invitation to the Friends of Emmet O'Neal Libary Book Sale Preview Party in February of each year.
