Literary Legends – Logistics & Parking

Literary Legends is a party in the Library. It moves around to different branches and takes place this year at the Bach Branch. [read more]

The Bach Branch of the Albany Public Library is located at 455 New Scotland Avenue. [Map]

This year, there will NOT be valet parking.
There is ample street parking available on side streets (Cardinal, Van Schoick, Oakwood.)
APL Foundation also encourage guests to walk, ride bikes, use public transit, or try out these newfangled ride shares.
Limited parking is also available at the St. Peter’s Health Partners parking lot on New Scotland and West Erie Street.

The Gala opens at 7pm, and the awards ceremony will begin at 7:30pm.

Honorary Committee members are invited to a pre-event reception at 6pm, and are welcome to arrive anytime between 6 and 7pm.

Tickets are still available!

Come party at the Library! Have a drink between the stacks. The weather is lovely and the garden will be open. Celebrate the wonderful life and career of Albany author, Athena V. Lord and meet some of our past Literary Legends!

You may be able to buy tickets at the door. Visit our Facebook page on Saturday for confirmation of ticket availability. But, why risk it? Buy your ticket online today! Tickets are also available at any APL Branch today. (If you buy your ticket at a branch today or tomorrow, ask the Librarian to staple your receipt to your ticket for proof of purchase.)
