As of April 15th, we are happy to announce the Albany Public Library is no longer charging late fines for overdue items!
We strive to provide access and information to all members of our community. By eliminating late fines, we hope to improve access to many of the people who benefit the most from what public libraries offer.
Are you starting a book club, or already have a book club and need books? We’ve got you covered. The Library checks out Book Club Kits that contain between 8-15 copies of fiction and nonfiction books. The Kits check out for 8 weeks. Find the list of Kits here Book Club Kits.

Each quarter there will be a drawing for prizes for participation .We hope this challenge will add some fun to your reading this year. Here’s the link.
