How We Help the Library

All profits raised by the Friends of the Albany County Public Library organization go to help the public library. Wonderful volunteers work tirelessly year-round to sort and organize the donations given so generously to our library for the book sales held throughout the year. All of the proceeds raised from our organization are for the benefit of our county library - for anything from special projects to helping with new book purchases.

In addition, library staff look over the donations we receive from the public and choose items that enhance or replace items in the collection. The library gets a significant portion of their collection from donations.

Donating Books?

We love donated books - we accept anything you are willing to give! We receive donations of books, magazines (current or topical only), movies (no VHS), recorded books, and other items that donors think might be sold during our book sales. We accept all donations, even the old and tattered! These donations are critical to our success in supporting the library and we sincerely appreciate your generosity. 

All donations can be taken inside to the Donation Area located near the computer terminals. Handcarts are available to assist with heavy boxes. If you would like a donation form for tax purchases, they are available at the Donation Area or online. Please do not leave donations outside the library when it is closed.
