We believe that through reading, we are able to open our imagination and increase our understanding of our world. Libraries are the hub of information for schools and communities. It just so happens that we created software to help libraries spread the love of learning and reading.


Alexandria’s mission is to make libraries as important today as they were 100 years ago. Libraries are not dead, and never will be.

Our goal is to give librarians the tools to share and promote their resources. Alexandria Library Automation Software has continued to be updated and enhanced for over 30 years.


To have a successful business you can’t just focus on profits - you have to focus on people. It is this focus that drives our passion to create a great product for our customers.

Many of the current features and processes in Alexandria have come from the feedback of librarians just like you.


We promise to take care of you.

Whether it is by providing free updates, 24/7 live customer support, or training, Alexandria is here to ensure you have a product you can count on.
