EVENT REGISTRATIONS

Alexandria Library presents and hosts a wide variety of events to the local community.  Our events include author talks, book clubs, STEAM/STEM activities, computer and technology classes, English conversation groups, storytimes and more.

Most of the programs at Alexandria Library do not require advanced registration. You can choose to attend a program at your convenience. Please be mindful of age and time restrictions when attending a library program.

Ticketed Programs

There are certain youth services programs that require parents or caregivers to pick up a ticket prior to the start of the program. Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. These programs will include information about tickets in the event description on the calendar.

Registration Programs

Programs that require advanced registration may contain a purple registration box on the event calendar that allows for online registration.  Other programs may require you to register by email, phone or by filling out a form at the library.  Online registration start dates may vary by age and program but are usually available a month in advance.
