About Us

At the Albany Public Library, we offer you friendly and welcome access to a world of information and entertainment to enrich your life.

Albany Public Library is one of the thriving community hubs that cement Albany's position as one of Australia's most liveable regional cities. Unique partnerships with the University of Western Australia (UWA), the State Library of Western Australia (SLWA) and a collection of over 70,000 items put us in a strong position to meet the information needs of the public. 

We operate as the Regional Library for the Great Southern Region, providing support to smaller country libraries to ensure they are able to offer a high quality of service to their customers. For more information on how this system works, or to learn more about services that your local country library can offer, please contact the Manager Arts & Culture.

If you are interested in local history the Albany Public Library houses the Albany History Collection, where you can access historical archives of newspapers, photographs and oral histories to name a few. More of the collection is being made available for access online and you can explore in more detail here.

Our work doesn't begin and end at checking out books either; the library is equipped with computers to offer free internet access as well as printing and photocopying facilities that are open to the public with no membership required.
