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!

Santa was here!
Saturday, November 22, 2014
Great thanks to Santa for visiting the library on Saturday, November 22, 2014. This is the 10th year Santa has made room to stop in before his schedule gets crazy in December. Even our staff had the opportunity to tell Santa what they wished for. We have lots more pictures on our facebook site!
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.
