Albany Public Library strives to educate, entertain, and empower the people of Albany.
We provide a platform for small businesses to be known and a network of resources to provide free services for the community.
We provide industry-specific career education, coaching, mentoring and sponsorship services for un/underemployed rising young professionals and entrepreneurs seeking to work in four key industries: construction, fashion, event planning, or social entrepreneurship.
We lead school gardening programs at Albany schools, focusing particularly on building connections with kids who are not thriving in school and who could benefit from adult connections and experiences in and with nature.
We build community, grow leaders, and foster authentic relationships grounded in the celebration of differences by increasing the capacity for civil discourse through the sharing of stories.
