What a Party!

Oh, yeah, I was THERE!!

From Stephanie Simon, Albany Public Library

The Pine Hills neighborhood welcomed the new library with open arms Saturday. Despite the snow that fell throughout the day, the library was packed with people all afternoon. Customers of all ages explored the fully renovated library, worked on the 24 public access computers, checked out the 50,000 materials, and marveled at the interior design and architectural features.

The celebration found neighbors of all ages nibbling on refreshments, enjoying musical entertainment, hearing welcoming remarks from library and city leaders, and watching a ribbon cutting ceremony by Pine Hills story time children.

It was a wonderful event and everyone at the library wishes to thank the Pine Hills community for its ongoing and enthusiastic support!!

Now that we have one library open, there are still four more to go. The next neighborhood library in line -- the Delaware Branch Library at 331 Delaware Avenue -- is expected to open to the public later this month. The Delaware grand opening celebration is set for Saturday, January 9. Stay tuned for more details!
