Collecting Items for Local National Youth Advocate Program
October 12-24, 2015
The library will be accepting donations for the Newark office of the National Youth Advocate Program from October 12-24.
NYAP is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving foster children, families and members of the community by providing counseling, foster parent training, doctors’ visits, group therapy, along with other in-patient and out-patient services. This fall, they are looking to gather craft or coloring supplies, new teddy bears, blankets, travel sized toiletries and journals. Blankets, teddy bears and toiletries will be given to the children as soon as they come into NYAP’s care, while the journals and craft supplies will be distributed to any child who expresses interest. Because Newark’s NYAP office serves 160+ children at any one time, these supplies run out fast!
Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Maddie Lotz by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 614.632.7569.

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.
