Who are we today...
Be connected to the library and our community!
The Albany Public Library seeks to be a welcoming place where community members can gather, find and share information and explore ideas.
The mission statement of the library encourages the participation of community members of all ages in both the individual and collective pursuit of knowledge, enrichment and enjoyment through books, timely information, programs, public gatherings and events.
We have two new computers, a vibrant collection of 3000+ books, audio books, and DVDs, and free access to wifi 24/7. You can now search online for Library materials available for check out with our new collaborative catalog.
Thanks to a grant from the Preservation Trust of Vermont and the help of many volunteers, the library is experiencing a transformation this year, which includes a fresh coat of paint, the building of a new reading nook and children's book bins, and putting wheels on the bookshelves which means that we can easily move them around to make room for community meetings and events. Thank you to everyone who has pitched in to make this possible!
We have a small group of passionate volunteers and a few special events coming up this season. In our service to the whole community and its families, we will be increasing both our collection and our activities as fast as our resources permit.
