Come early and often to the West Alexandria Branch Friends of the Library book sale at Peace Park during the annual Oktoberfest.
We have a wide selection of books for all ages, magazines, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs and even some puzzles. The sale will be both Saturday and Sunday of the event. All sales are through donation only so everyone can come and fill up bags of books to stock up for your winter reading. All funds raised support our Friends of the Library who helps support the West Alexandria Branch with programs and others needs.
What can you do with some old buttons, glue and a balloon? Make a button bowl! Please note the change of time for this adult craft to 5 instead of our normal 5:30 in order to give you plenty of time to complete project.
Don't forget to stop by the West Alexandria Library while you are out trick-or-treating. We will have goody bags for all of our trick-or-treaters.
Join us at the West Alexandria Branch for fall fun for the whole family. We will have games, snacks, crafts and more. We will have stations set up around the library for you and your family to explore.
