NEW! Adult Movie Night:
Still Alice (PG13)
Monday, October 24 at 7PM
In conjunction with this month’s Adult Book Club, we are hosting a FREE screening of Still Alice, a PG13 movie about Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking, and inspiring. (Click on the movie for a preview!)
This movie is intended for adults or teens 9th grade and older. POPCORN will be served!

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!
Fiscal Officer Retires
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!
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!
