Alexandria Library Staff Travels to Europe for Multi-City Library Tour

Funded by a generous grant, the Thomas Jefferson Fellowship allowed two library staff to connect with European librarians in an exchange of culture, experiences and ideas. As a result, the librarians return with inspiration to launch new programs and services in Alexandria. During this European trip, the staff visited several European libraries including Cologne Library, Hamburg Libraries, and Copenhagen Library.
