Terrible library. The staff yelled at my children for sitting on stools to read. There were several aisles where books were stacked on the floor. Librarians passed these aisles and did not attempt to organize them. The staff was equally as rude giving me an attitude when I asked where a particular book was. Please avoid this library.
Great library, wonderful staff – Great library. Staff develop terrific public programs. Very active childrens and teen programs. Good audio book and dvd collection. Great services. Wish it was a bit bigger and of course, coffee would be great.
This library doesn't just house books, it's also a thriving community center.
– The Scene
Guilderland Public Library does what you'd expect it to do (loan books) but also offers off-the-wall services, like renting fishing poles, hooks and sinkers. By maintaining a valuable collection of historical memorabilia and acting as a community meeting place, this small space has become a civic giant.
What to Do
With cushy chairs and locally made art on the walls, this building is a great place for reading and relaxing. Activities for kids include summer reading clubs, craft workshops and story times featuring books on pirates, dinosaurs, space and other themes. Programs for adults range from computer classes to discussion groups. And you can even check out books.
