Our "Take Your Library With You" Postcard Campaign

We asked, and you delivered--your postcards. In celebration of Alexandria Library's 75th Anniversary, our "Take Your Library With You” postcard campaign gave the Library some insight about the Alexandria community. We're pleased that our city's residents enjoyed their summer trips, vacationing in destinations near and far. Hover over and click the highlighted areas of the map to see where people traveled, and the books that they brought with them. The vacation maps are also on display at all four Alexandria Library branches.


For those of you who haven't participated, the postcard campaign still continues! Come into any of the branches, participating community restaurants or locations, and pick up a postcard to take with you on your vacation! Tell us where you went and mail it back to us to be displayed. We'd love for you to share with us your vacation reads as well.
