Guilderland Public Library is committed to its mission of providing quality library materials and services to our community for lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and enjoyment.
The vital duty our trustees fulfill on behalf of all taxpaying residents is a key responsibility that serves to safeguard this mission for generations to come. Board meetings are held monthly at 7 p.m. and are open to the public, plus live-streamed on our Facebook page.
We appreciate all interest in responsible stewardship of your public library to make it the very best it can be.
