During the COVID-19 pandemic, Alexandria Library has continued to provide many library services with a variety of electronic resources and ongoing virtual programs for children, teens, and adults. Last month, the Library’s Adult Summer Reading and SummerQuest program launched and are now live through September 6, 2020. If you would like to participate online, you can register through Beanstack at https://alexandria.beanstack.org/.
At a future date, Alexandria Library locations will re-open to the public — this date has yet to be determined. The libraries are not accepting book donations at this time; however, library materials can be returned anytime in the library’s book return slots at any location. Due dates for currently checked out materials have been extended. Library staff encourages everyone to continue practicing physical distancing, washing hands frequently, wearing clean masks properly, and maintaining good health with exercise and balanced diets.
