APL Foundation aims to raise $1000 this Giving Tuesday for Music Programs at Albany Public Library!

APL presents dozens of amazing music programs every year, from the Mic Drop and Guitar Lessons at Howe Branch to the Silent Film Spectacular and Garage Band at Washington Ave to the Garden Concerts at Bach. Your donation will help the APL Foundation support even more music programs at Albany Public Library, and to provide increased artist fees to the musicians who perform at APL for very modest fees.

To donate online, simply click here or on the Donate button above!

To donate at a branch, visit any circulation desk and let them know you would like to donate to the Library Foundation. You can donate at branches with cash, debit card, or credit card. Please note that donations at the branch are anonymous by default. You will have a receipt at the time of your donation, but you will not receive an end-of-year letter or any personalized acknowledgement.

Help us reach our goal by sharing our appeal on social media!
