The Alexandria-Monroe Public Library has been serving Alexandria and Monroe Townships for over 120 years.

The Alexandria Library was founded in 1896 with 200 books donated from local citizens.

In 1898 it was moved to the basement of the newly build Central School on the corner of West and Washington streets where it resided for one year. From there it relocated to the I.O.O.F Hall above the post office on West Church Street until moving to the current address of 117 East Church...
