If you would like to pay off existing OVERDUE fines (not lost or damaged), please bring one canned or non-perishable food item for each dollar you owe for donation to the Johnstown-Northridge Food Pantry. We will not be able to accept any expired or damaged food items.
For a little extra fun, don’t miss your chance to play our Guess and Guess Again Game. If you can guess the correct number of items held by our library from each (or any) of the following categories, you may win a gift card to Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.

Library Partners with Operation Round Up to Service Northridge Intermediate Students
Memorial Chair Donated
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!
Memorial Bench Donated
Mrs. Patty Oyler and the late Don Oyler have generously donated a hand-crafted resin bench in memory of their son, Jeffrey Oyler. Their gift is greatly appreciated and will serve the library and the Alexandria community for many years to come. The bench is located in the library’s courtyard on the east side of the building – take a minute to enjoy the shade.
