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!

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.
