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!
