Alexandria Library is the public library in Alexandria, Virginia in the United States.
In 1794, Alexandria Library opened as a private lending library, calling itself Alexandria Library Company. In 1937, Dr. Robert South Barrett donated funds for a public library in memory of his mother, Dr. Kate Waller Barrett. The Society of Friends granted a 99-year lease for use of its old Quaker Burial Ground as its site. The Library Company signed an agreement with the Alexandria City Council turning over its collections to City of Alexandria. The City agreed to include operating expenses for the public library in its budget.
