About Us

Passionate support for your library


The mission of the Albany County Public Library Foundation is to generate funds through gifts, endowments, memorials and special programs in order to improve the Albany County Public Library in perpetuity through specific programs, direct financial assistance and community outreach.

The ACPL Foundation was founded in 1976 and became an incorporated 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation in 1978. The ACPL Foundation was created to help raise funds for a new building. The organization proudly supported ACPL opening the doors to its new building in 1981.

Since that time, the ACPL Foundation has worked diligently to raise funds for the public library. Starting in 2000, ACPLF has provided a minimum of $60,000 to the library each year. In a community where government funds stretch to cover personnel and some operating costs, Albany County Public Library relies on library foundation funding for programming, technology, materials, building maintenance, supplies, continuing education, and special projects.

The ACPL Foundation functions as a separate organization, independent from the library, with the sole purpose of providing financial support for ACPL.
