I would like a library card for my school, business, or agency.

When applying for an Albany school/business/agency library card please refer to the following list of requirements:

1. Submit a letter on business letterhead requesting a card for your institution.  The letter must state:

  • Date of application
  • Name of school/business/agency
  • Agreement of financial responsibility for items borrowed
  • The card will be used for school/business/agency purposes only (non-recreation)
  • Signature of responsible party (i.e. school principal, owner, director, manager, etc.)

2. An application form must be filled out (at the Library) as follows:

  • Name of school/business/agency
  • Address and phone number of school/business /agency (address must be inside the Albany city limits)
  • Signature and personal information of the owner, director, manager, etc.

Please note:

The Library card may be picked up at the time of application.  Library cards are not mailed out.  Cards will not be issued without a signed application and letter.  The library card must be in hand at the time of check out.  Items may not be borrowed without possession of the library card.  It is the school’s/business’s/agency’s responsibility to control use of the library card.  The Library is not able to monitor usage by specific individuals.  Notice will be mailed for overdue items.  Reserves may be made using the library card.  A notice will be mailed to the school/business/agency when the reserve is available.  The Library is not able to notify specific individuals within the school/business/agency.
