I live or own property within the city limits of Albany

To get a library card, you need to bring proof of residency. If you live at the property, you can bring a driver’s license with your current address, a rent receipt, a utility bill, or a piece of first-class mail that has been postmarked in the last 30 days and has your name on it.

People owning rental property but living elsewhere will need to provide a copy of their property tax statement on a yearly basis, as well as proof of current mailing address.

If you are 16 or over, you are also asked to bring a picture ID. Once you have provided the above information and filled out an application, your card is valid and you may check out materials. If you are between the ages of 4 and 15, you will need to be accompanied by your legal guardian or parent (who will need to bring a picture ID and proof of residence) as they are legally responsible for all items checked out on a minor’s card.
