Thank You to Our Donors of the Alexandria Library Foundation Event!
Alexandria Library Foundation planned an event scheduled for Saturday, April 18 that was cancelled, due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak. The purpose of the celebration was to raise funds for materials and programs, especially for young learners, and to preserve some of the most important documents in our local history collection.
Following the recent CDC guidance to avoid large gatherings, and to protect the health of our attendees and staff, we initially planned to postpone the celebration. However, in looking at our options, we decided to cancel the event so that we can focus on our core mission of providing opportunities to learn, explore, create and connect.
Our work is even more critical to our community during social distancing. We are offering a variety of digital programming and demand for e-books continues to grow. Providing these resources is not without cost; for example, e-books for library use are much more expensive than those for personal use.
