Celebrating Friends of Alexandria Library

In celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week, Alexandria Library would love to recognize the contributions of the Friends of each of our branches, whose efforts and fund-raising help make programming and events possible. They have also assisted with special projects, and the purchasing of our materials. This week at our Barrett Branch, we welcome you to drop in to express your appreciation, or read personal thank you notes written by our staff. Learn how to support Alexandria Library and find out about becoming a Friend by contacting our staff below:
