Library Passport- Rensselaer Public Library #UHLS

Jane is visiting all 36 locations of the Upper Hudson Library System (see introduction)



Library Passport Challenge: Rensselaer Public Library

This building used to be a pharmacy, but now is a modern library.  It’s right next to the Amtrak station, which is known as the Albany station even though it is in Rensselaer.  Possibly because Rensselaer is hard to spell- it’s Dutch.

This library, in Rensselaer county, NY,  is not to be confused with Rensselaer Polytech Institute, which is in Troy; or Rensselaerville Library, which is in Albany county; or the Jasper County Public Library, which is in Rensselaer, Indiana.  (They apparently get some strange phone calls).

Small collection, one room layout with very nice toddler play area.  Two small tutor rooms and one large conference room. Genres are mixed together in fiction sections.  Large public computer area, wifi, loan of laptops within building.  Friendly staff.

1 library checked off  of my  passport.
