About Us

About Friends of the Library…

We are a non-profit organization that works to support the mission of the Albany County Public Library. We rely on volunteers to sort and sell donated books, and the proceeds from these sales are then donated back to the library to assist with the purchase of new materials. We generally have three book sales a year, as well as selling books through an Amazon storefront and in the “Book Nook” near the library’s entrance. Please visit our shop page to learn more about these sales and to see how you can support our library! We also donate many books to organizations throughout the community.
