Proudly serving Albany, Oregon and surrounding communities...

Welcome to your library!

¡Bienvenido a la biblioteca!

What's new at the library:

Rough Beauty

Join the discussion Tuesday, December 11 at 12:00 p.m. The Modern Voices Book Group will be discussing “Rough Beauty”  by Karen Auvinen.

Everyone is welcome!  Pick up a copy of the book at the Reference Desk.

Game Night

Tuesday, December 18 at 6:00 p.m.  Board game fans ages 10 and up are invited to Game Day. Bring your favorite game, or play with one of the Library’s games. If you love Settlers of Cataan, or Checkers, this is the program for you. The event lasts two hours and is free of charge.

Game Day takes place the third Tuesday of each month.  No registration is required.

Chapter Book Club

Wednesday, December 19 at 3:30 p.m. This month’s book is, “Alvin Ho” by Lenore Look. Alvin is afraid of everything—elevators, tunnels, girls, and, most of all, school. But at home he’s a very loud superhero named Firecracker Man. Copies available to check out at the Children’s Desk—reading ahead recommended!

The Chapter Book club meets every third Wednesday for fun discussions and activities.
