President Obama’s Inauguration Topic of Albany Public Library Program on March 17

Albany Journalists, Councilman to Recall Their Experiences

The historic inauguration of the United States’ 44th president is the focus of a March 17 program at the Albany Public Library (APL). "Relive the Historic Day: Reflections on the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States" takes place at 12:15 p.m. in the large auditorium of the Main Library at 161 Washington Avenue. The public is invited to this free event.

Local journalists Paul Grondahl and Dennis Gaffney, who is also president of the APL Board of Trustees, and Albany Councilman Corey Ellis will share their experiences from the January 20 inauguration of President Barack Obama. All three men attended the inauguration in Washington, DC, and have many stories to tell about their experiences. The program will include a video presentation, produced by Grondahl, about the historic event.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Albany Public Library and is part of the Friends weekly "Noon Talk" programs, which feature book reviews, panel discussions, and programs of current interest to the community.

The Albany Public Library (APL) operates six locations serving the residents of Albany. Each month, more than 55,000 people use the libraries to borrow materials, attend programs, access computers, and research information. More than 90,000 books, DVDs, and other materials are circulated each month. APL is creating five new branches to better serve customers.
