Menands Library – Small enough to know you, big enough to serve you



We’re a small community library, but luckily for our cardholders, we’re part of the Upper Hudson Library System, a consortium of libraries in Albany and Rensselaer counties.  If you’re a cardholder at any public library in these two counties, you already have a card that’s valid here.  We have collections for children, adults, and teens, as well as access to UHLS’s online collection and other electronic resources where you can get digital magazines, get resume help, learn another language, or even explore your family history.

Stop in today!
