The ACPL Foundation encourages you to donate your new or gently used books and materials to the Friends of the Library. Items donated to the Friends of the Library may be incorporated into the library’s collection, or may be sold at a book sale. In-kind donations are accepted at the Albany County Public Library, 310 S. 8th St. Please note: books and materials are only accepted when the library is open.
