Care Packages for Active Service Soldiers
March 1 – 15, 2017
Donations are being gathered through March 15th for care packages that are sent annually to all service men and women from St. Alban’s Township. Personal care items (deodorant, toothbrushes, eye drops, lip balms) or individual serving food packages (granola bars, gum, sunflower seeds, oatmeal, crackers, etc.) are all helpful. If you’d like to include a bonus fun item, hand held games, word game books, playing cards, card games, dice games, travel size board games, travel size jigsaw puzzles or Nerf balls would be appreciated. Best gift of all? Letters and cards!
If you would like items sent to a specific soldier, please mark the item with the name and we will see that it gets delivered. If you know of any solder who should be included, please submit name and address to Ina Rae Kean no later than March 15th.
Items may be dropped off at the library anytime. Questions? Please contact Miss Ina Rae at 740.924.5671.
Can you help pack boxes? We’ll be compiling them on

Operation Round Up Grant Received to Repair Historic Bell
The Historical Society of Alexandria installed the Congregational Church bell on the lawn of the Alexandria Public Library in 1976. The base was built of cement and brick, unfortunately, the base did not withstand the test of time or the weather. Neither the Historical Society nor Congregational Church exists today; no funds were saved for any future care of the monument.
THANK YOU ENERGY COOPERATIVE!

Mrs. Priscilla Horn, Fiscal Officer for the library since 1967, retired on June 30, 2015. Her tireless, behind-the-scenes efforts enabling the library to be a sustainable, vibrant gathering spot for everyone, are greatly appreciated by the Board of Trustees and library staff. Mrs. Horn will continue to serve the library as a Trustee.
Thank you, Miss Priscilla for taking such great care of us!

The members of the Alexandria Homemakers Club have generously donated a cozy reading chair in memory of former Homemaker, friend and longtime library patron, Mrs. Jo Budd. Their donation is a wonderful gift that all our library visitors will enjoy. The oversize chair (perfect for reading) is located in the nook near our newspapers and magazines. Thank you, Homemakers!
