Albany Public Library Locations

Changes due to COVID-19:

Note: We are not allowing browsing in the buildings at this time. If you are looking for something to read or watch, please call one of the branches and a librarian will help you make a selection that can be borrowed using curbside pickup.

(Updated 11/17/20)

We have seven award-winning neighborhood libraries across the city of Albany, NY where you can read, learn, and interact with a wide variety of great resources. In addition, we offer fantastic programs for all ages! Our libraries are open to everyone, though you will need a library card to borrow materials and use certain services. Learn more about what you’ll find at each of our branches, and visit us today!
