There almost certainly was nothing in the Library at Alexandria that would have advanced our culture technologically that wasn't widely known at the time.
Most of the Library was created by confiscating books and returning copies of those books to the original owners.
There are other, intact, libraries as old (or older) that the one at Alexandria.
What are the older libraries? The only thing I found on the internet is this started in 6th century AD which is younger than the library in Alexandria. (Or maybe you mean libraries like the clay tablets from Persepolis?)
