 Alexandria Library Patrons Can Write, Share Reviews of Library Materials

Ever read a book you loved (or hated!) so much that you wanted to tell others about it? Alexandria Library now offers its patrons a chance to write their own reviews of almost all of the Library holdings (books, movies, music, and other materials) on the Alexandria Library Web site online catalog at www.alexandria.lib.va.us. The catalog can now be the place where patrons can go to get recommendations from others on library materials to check out.

"Our Library now has a truly interactive mechanism, completely integrated into our catalog,” said Rose Dawson, Director of Libraries. “We know that our patrons are already used to such interaction on many commercial Web sites, but our Library affords its patrons the ability to reserve materials online—and to get those materials at no charge."

To access the online catalog, visit www.alexandria.lib.va.us, click on “Library Catalog,” and begin browsing. To write a review, simply register and type your review for all to read. For more information, contact Mark Schwartz at 703.519.3498, or e-mail mschwartz@alexandria.lib.va.us.
