Toys for Tots

The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, and the Albany Public Library are working together to make the holidays special for local children.

The program collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Families in Albany can sign up to request toys at the Albany Public Library. Toy donation boxes are located at the Albany Public Library, Christmas Storybook Land, and in businesses throughout Linn County. For more information go to
