Board of Trustees
The Albany Public Library is led by a team devoted to connecting you with the information you need to improve and enrich your life.
In addition to the leadership team, we have more than 120 full- and part-time employees and dozens of volunteers who help make it possible for us to bring so many resources, programs, and events to Albany, New York residents.
The library’s nine-member Board of Trustees is charged with ensuring that the library fulfills its mission in a fiscally and operationally responsible way. The board is governed by a set of bylaws, which is regularly reviewed and amended as needed.
The full board meets the second Tuesday of every month (unless otherwise noted). The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
