New Hours!

Welcome back to the Albany Public Library!

Similar to our previous Express Services, we will be implementing some changes to minimize the number of patrons in the library.

  • While there will not be a time limit to using the building, we will ask that you browse for your items and then take them back home to enjoy, rather than in the libraries.
  • The library furniture and toys are not available during this time.
  • Study rooms and computers are available at the Main Library with a 2-hour time limit.
  • The Library Meeting Rooms will remain closed to the public.
  • Masks are required to be worn in the libraries.
Our online services – such as our e-book platforms, the digital edition of the New York Times, Tumblebooks for kids, and other databases on a variety of topics – will be available 24/7, as always.


We look forward to having you back in the library!
