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 staff 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 by-laws, which is regularly reviewed and amended as needed.
Board of Trustees
The full board meets the second Tuesday of every month (unless otherwise noted). Committees meet as needed. The public is invited and encouraged to attend board and committee meetings. If you can’t attend the board meetings in person, you can watch the meetings live, or at a later date, on YouTube.
Share comments with the board: Currently, members of the public can share comments with the board by email email@example.com,by phone (518) 290-6905, or at the board meetings. Public comments are read during the board meetings. You need to include your name and street address to have your comment read at the meeting and entered into the public record.
