Is it possible to hide document libraries on SharePoint?

I see that folders within a document library can be hidden, but I would like the whole document library to be hidden.

Thanks

Hi@BrookePhillips14 ,

 

It is possible, just edit the library permissions to un-inherit from the site and change the permissions accordingly. Any users without permissions will not be able to see it.

Without breaking security, you can configure the visility of a Doc. Library with some PowerShell: https://www.sharepointsky.com/hide-document-library-or-lists-using-powershell-in-sharepoint-2016-or-...
who do you want it hidden from?
on the quick launch, the site contents page, or both?
do you want its contents to found in a search?
