Welcome to the Albany Made Podcast, the new podcast from the Albany Public Library!

Welcome to the Albany Made Podcast – a podcast about the city of Albany and the library’s place in it. With the help of our staff and the local community, we will explore everything from local history, to arts and culture, to the function of the library in the community. Thank you for tuning in! We hope you enjoy it.

We also want to hear from you, our patrons.  Maybe you’re curious about the programs & services we offer, or you’re wondering what goes on in the Albany Made Creative Lab?  Send us those questions, along with your comments and show ideas, and we’ll answer them as thoroughly as only librarians can.
