Alexandria Library wins $8K American Dream Grant from American Library Association

Alexandria Library has been chosen as a recipient of the American Dream Grant, which has been awarded to only 44 other public libraries in the nation. The American Library Association (ALA) selected libraries in 21 states to receive these one-time grants of $5,000 to $15,000 to add or expand literacy services for the adult English language learners in their communities. This funding, made possible by ALA and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, will help libraries build their print and digital ESL collections, increase computer access and raise the visibility of library services for immigrant populations.
