ALAC Micro Library

Published on Wednesday, 16 March 2022 at 10:03:53 AM

Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre gym-goers and Long Live You members rejoice! You can now borrow items from Albany Public Library before or after your fitness session, after the opening of our first pop-up micro library.
The self-service micro library allows gym users to scan their library card and borrow up to five items for three weeks and return items via a radio pad. Positioned outside the gym at ALAC, the micro library service is available for members with regular and 24/7 access to the gym. A selection of library resources, including books, DVDs, and audiobooks are be available to loan.
Library staff will regularly rotate the offerings, so there should always be something new. A stock of Junior and Young Adult items are also available, giving time-poor parents an extra opportunity to grab something for their family.
The micro-library is one of several projects funded by the Brandenburg Trust aimed at providing a service for seniors in the Albany community.
