Interlibrary Loan

Did you know that Albany Public Library is part of a nationwide resource sharing network? If you are looking for a book or an article that is not available in the Upper Hudson Library System, our librarians can conduct a search and, if we find a library that will lend it, have it delivered to the Albany Public Library branch of your choice.

There are some restrictions to what we can and cannot request—see the complete Interlibrary Loan Guidelines. Due to changes related to operating during the pandemic, only select branches are pick up locations for interlibrary loan items.
