Patron Appreciation Days
The Alexandrian Public Library cordially invites you and your friends to attend our Patron Appreciation Days celebration on November 20 and 21. Each year, APL staff like to show their appreciation for the patrons that make their jobs necessary and fulfilling. Stop by at any time during library hours so they can say: “Thank You!” Plus, we’ll have free gifts available while they last.
Our Heroes’ Tree
In honor of those who have served in the military during wartime or in peacetime, Alexandrian Public Library is again requesting community residents to bring in photographs honoring a service member from past or present for the Our Heroes’ Tree program. It is preferred that the photograph is of a veteran in uniform with a bit of background and it is best to submit a copy of a photograph since pictures will not be returned.
Any photographs received will be placed on ornaments and then hung on a tree located inside the library from November 19 to December 1. If you submitted a photograph for the Our Heroes’ Tree program between 2009 – 2011 your honored service member will already be on the tree.
