New Albany History Room to Open March 28

Local history buffs will soon have a beautiful new space in which to research the important people, places, and events in Albany’s past. The Pruyn Collection of Albany History at Albany Public Library is opening in a new location at the Main Library on March 28 at 5 p.m.

The collection is currently housed in an alcove of the Reference Department on the second floor of the Main Library at 161 Washington Avenue. Staff closed the room’s doors on March 7 in order to move the collection to its new home across the hall. During the next several weeks, the books, periodicals, photographs, and other documents recording Albany’s rich history will be relocated to the new Albany History Room.
