The Troy Public Library staff is working hard to provide programs of interest to our community, that are held at convenient times. Please assist us in our planning by completing this brief survey concerning programming.
Thank you for taking the time to assist us in this endeavor.
We now have the use of the Rensselaer County Courthouse parking (see map) lot in the evenings after 5 PM and on Saturdays. Parking is accessible from the alley on Congress Street, across from Brueggers, with an exit onto Third Street. A caution however. The county is not responsible for theft or damage to vehicles or contents of vehicles parked in the courthouse lot.
Since the library does not have a parking lot, during the day, on street parking is the only option. It is important to remember that parking on the street north of Ferry Street (now a tunnel on second street) is designated as downtown and two hour parking is in effect. South of Ferry street there is no time limit and all day parking can usually be found within two blocks of the Main Library. Congress Street is designated as a pay to park area.
Friday is alternate side of the street parking on Second and Third Streets for regular street cleaning and/or snow plowing. No parking on the West side of the street between 9AM and Noon and no parking on the East side between Noon and 3 PM. Parking restrictions are strictly enforced.
The Lansingburgh Branch on 114th Street has a small off street parking lot. If the lot is full, on street parking is readily available.
“Books Heal Hearts” is a project set up by the Cyrenius H. Booth Library, Newtown, CT with donations, both monetary and physical books, given in response to the Sandy Hook School tragedy.
More information on how to donate can be found here: Cyrenius H. Booth Library.
During the month of May you can donate unopened containers of wet/dry cat and dog food as well as cat litter for local animal shelters.
Please bring your item to the Young People’s Room at the Main Library or to the Lansingburgh Branch.
