The Albany Public Library is pleased to make available to not-for-profit, noncommercial, nonsectarian, and nonpolitical organizations meeting room facilities.
Sometimes it is difficult to find a space to conduct a meeting. The following locations are known to accommodate groups in search of a space. Each hosting location will have its own policies regarding hours, costs, and services. Please make local inquiry.
Items not owned by the Albany Public Library may be requested from another institution by submitting an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request.
For each ILL request, there is a nonrefundable $3.00 fee. Although the Library will make every effort to fill your request, there is no guarantee that it will be possible to do so. Please allow 1 to 3 weeks for requests to be filled.
For more information, or to submit an ILL request, please visit the Reference desk or call 541-917-7582.
The Albany Public Library offers test proctoring services to patrons with a current Albany Public Library card. If a student does not live within the Albany city limits the student will need to purchase a $50 nonresident card before the Library can administer proctoring services. (Oregon Library Passport cards cannot be used for test proctoring.) The student needs to make an appointment to take the test – any open hours are suitable, as long as the student will have time to complete the test before the Library closes.
For more information or to make an appointment please call the Reference Desk at 541-917-7582 or email: email@example.com
Vacation loan periods may be requested at the time of checkout and they are double the usual loan period. Items that normally check out for one week will be checked out for two weeks, and items that normally check out for three weeks will be checked out for six weeks.
Call or e-mail us for an extended loan – 541-917-7581.
