Book Clubs

The Albany Public Library is excited to announce a Community Reads event featuring the novel Afterlife by Julia Alvarez.  

APL Community Reads is a community-wide reading project that invites the people of Albany to come together through reading and discussion based on the themes of a common book.  Copies of Afterlife are available to pick up at both libraries*. In addition, multiple copies of the eBook and eAudiobook are available to download and enjoy on the cloudLibrary and Libby apps.
