Need help with this SQL query
Challenge task 1. thank you
In the library database there's a patrons table listing all the users of the library. The columns are id, first_name, last_name, address, email, library_id and zip_code.
Generate a list of strings that are in the following format: Andrew Chalkley email@example.com. Concatenate the first name, last name and email address for all users.
Alias it to to_field. This will be used in the "To" field in email marketing.
HERE IS MY ANSWER. I cant figure out. thanks
SELECT first_name || " " || last_name || email FROM patrons;

You're part way there, but you need a few more elements. Take another look at the format:
Andrew Chalkley <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Note that there is a space and an angle bracket before the email, and a closing angle after it. You'll need to include those in your concatenated string.
Then, remember that the instructions asked you to "Alias it to to_field."
Add these to your query and you'll pass the challenge.
