October 16, 2019 | Library News

OCT. 28 UPDATE: The issue has been resolved and delivery is back to normal! We appreciate your patience.

OCT. 21 UPDATE: The situation is improving, but we will continue to have limited deliveries for the next couple of days. Thanks for hanging in there with us!

Oct. 16, 2019 — The system courier service that delivers books and DVDs to libraries throughout Albany and Rensselaer counties has been temporarily suspended.

Albany Public Library will continue to transport material between our seven APL branches to make sure APL items get into the hands of Albany patrons.

Please be patient, as it may take longer to fulfill some hold requests. We appreciate your understanding as the system works to resume normal deliveries.

We’ll keep you updated as this unexpected situation is resolved.
