Albany Public Library wants to make sure you have the resources you need not only at your neighborhood branch, but at home and on the go, too! Our eLibrary is the one-stop shop for every way you can use the library online, whether you’re downloading eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines, streaming video, conducting research in our databases, reserving a meeting room, or checking out our digital local history collection. You can also download our mobile app and apply for our eCard, a special library card just for Albany residents who only want to access our digital content and our public computers.
Have a question and our libraries are closed? Ask a Librarian! We’re here to help, and we’ll respond within one working day.
