The purpose of the Menands Public Library is to provide information, education, cultural and recreational resources, services and programs for people of all ages in the Menands community. To that end we offer our patrons access to the latest New York Times best selling books, newly released DVDs from both Hollywood and Bollywood plus audio books, juvenile literature, graphic novels and video games. We also host children’s events and seasonal movie series throughout the year.
