Support Your Library

You can help in many different ways:  donate money, time and more.

Donate to the Albany Public Library Foundation

Your gift to the library though the Albany Public Library Foundation means the difference between good libraries and great libraries. With private support, we can assist in building new libraries, expand our collections to include more of what patrons want in materials and technology, enhance literary and humanities programs and bring books alive for children, teens, and adults.

For more information, contact Scott Jarzombek, Executive Director, 518-427-4379,
