Youth Services & Programs
Albany Public Library’s Youth Services programs focus on literacy, arts, science, and technology. Our story times, creative play activities, and programs provide a safe and fun environment. We offer after-school tutoring in most subjects, and we partner with a number of organizations to introduce the latest in robotics, coding, and more to kids and teens.
