Library Partners with Operation Round Up to Service Northridge Intermediate StudentsEnergyCoopLogo8

We are pleased to announce a new arrangement to bring library services to students at Northridge Intermediate School. Beginning in February, the Alexandria Public Library will be delivering Classroom Kits to each teacher at the Intermediate campus. Each Classroom Kit is a collection of high interest fiction and nonfiction books with reading levels targeted to fourth and fifth graders. The goal of these kits are to provide books that will foster students’ interest in reading.
This Classroom Kit project is made possible with a grant from The Energy Cooperative’s community service program, Operation Round Up. This program “rounds up” a member’s bill to the nearest dollar and that amount (which is completely tax deductible) is donated to local charities.
The library has had a long-standing arrangement of more than 60 years providing students at Northridge Primary (formeroperationRounduply Alexandria School and Alexandria Elementary) with library materials and services. We look forward to beginning a new chapter with Northridge Local School District.

Memorial Chair Donated

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThe 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.
