Foundation Funds Library Link!

With the generous support of our donors, the Albany Public Library Foundation is proud to announce the funding of Library Link at the John Bach Branch Library. Library Link is a new partnership with Albany’s Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NNORC), which helps seniors in the Bach neighborhood age in place. Starting in late January, APL staff has been coordinating volunteers to provide a home delivery and pick up service for library resources, as well as a chatting time with seniors to better understand what other books or library materials the senior may want. “The Foundation is always looking for ways to develop and fund innovative programs at APL,” said Holly McKenna, the Foundation’s president. “Library Link enables senior patrons to continue their love for the library at home!”
