Teen Nights at the Library
Pizza, movie, crafts! Check out our teen nights throughout the summer.
If you are a student who will be entering the 7th grade this fall, the Albany Public Library would like to invite you to be a volunteer! If you can picture yourself helping young people with arts and crafts, assisting library staff with set-up and tear-down of events, or working to provide a great experience for library visitors, please download and fill out a Youth Volunteer Application and bring it to either Albany Public Library branch! Although volunteers offer their time free of charge, there are still many benefits. A library volunteer acquires valuable experience and job training that looks great on resumes, while also getting a behind-the-scenes look at public service and library related careers. You will meet interesting new people of all kinds, many of whom share your interests, and make new friends. The Albany Public Library is both a mirror of the local community and a window to the world, and we would love your help!
Do you enjoy acting? Puppets? Creating different voices? Adding creative ideas to a script? You can use your talents in the summer Marionette Puppet Show! Marionettes are a great way to practice and showcase your theatrical skills in a setting where the audience sees only the puppets, not the people. You must be going into grades 5 through 12 to participate. We will meet for two rehearsals, July 30, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., and August 6, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. We will give two performances on August 7, at 10:30 a.m. and at 1:00 p.m.
