I love coming to work each day at the library, because of the people. Our staff is 2nd to none. You will not find a more helpful, friendly, and team oriented staff. And our patrons are the best in the state. I enjoy talking with them and getting to know my community one patron at a time!

I love my patrons and I enjoy helping people. Crafting with my outreach patrons is one of my favorite things to do! I always appreciated the experiences and service I would have when I would bring my son to the library and it is awesome to be part of that now!

In working for the Alexandria Library as long as I have, I would have to say that the family the staff has become is what I love the most. We believe in one another, trust one another, and stand behind one another no matter what the outcome may be. We are able to understand each other’s individual life situations and will do anything to help accommodate as necessary. My coworkers are the people whom I consider my second family, my home away from home, and some of my best friends. I couldn’t be who I am today without the love, support, and encouragement from all of you!

There is something about the people that libraries attract. From the staff to the patrons, there is always a conglomeration of people that wouldn’t normally associate with each other but libraries aren’t afraid to welcome all. I love being part of something bigger that is so inclusive!

Staff member since October 2018
I fell in love with this library during my internship. I have always wanted to work here! Now that I am here I live for those moments when a kiddo finds a book that he likes and I get to see their face light up when they find out there are more! It’s all very freeing and like an escape.

I like touching all of the books. Every material that our library circulates has to pass through my hands before it can be checked out! I enjoy taking care of the collection and being part of the first steps materials take when they first come to us!
