- Meetings on DVD:
The Albany Library Customer Reference Desk now has copies of Council Meetings on DVD that can be checked out by residents to view at home. The Library says it will keep these on file for 6 months. Since the usual turn around of new material received by the library for "normal" sign out takes a month to get into their system, these DVD's will be held at the Reference Desk and checked out manually by library staff.
