Alexandria Library Foundation
All Great Ideas Begin With
A Solid Foundation
Chartered in 1998, the Alexandria Library Foundation was formed to enhance the Alexandria Library's services through private donations. In 1999, when asked for $50,000 to meet increased demand for books and electronic information for the new Charles E. Beatley, Jr. Library, the City approved instead a $25,000 challenge grant. The donors to the Foundation met this challenge. We would like to thank everyone for their generous support!
In 2000, with the opening of the new library, we asked the City to add $50,000 to our operating budget in response to the increased demand for materials and services. The City offered a second challenge grant of $25,000, which required matching funds by the Foundation. The continued generosity of the community is needed for the Alexandria Library to provide the excellence in service and materials our residents deserve.
During this current economic downturn, we need your support now more than ever. Find out how you can help.
