Survey Says: You Owned a Library Card Probably Before Your First Wallet

We asked what age you received your first library card, and nearly 85% of you said you received a card under the age of 12.  We imagine that your patronage of libraries at a young age and your fond childhood memories of them inspired you to become a lifelong library advocate. In the words of English writer and playwright Graham Greene, "There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in." At Alexandria Library, we want to continue to be a part of your lives and love of learning in the years to come. Help us shape our future by taking this survey.
