The Colonie Town Library empowers people of all ages and abilities to connect, learn, and grow by providing access to lifelong learning, technology, cultural programming, and promoting the joy of reading.
A commemorative plaque, located in the library's foyer notes, "Bill Sanford early on sensed the desire of our citizens for a true full-service public library in Colonie, with enthusiastic help and cooperation of the people of the town, of many serious volunteers, professionals, public officials, town employees, and with the strong backing of the Colonie Library trustees and the Colonie Town Board, he saw to it that such a library became a reality."
The library is strategically located in the center of the Capital District, an area rich in history, cultural resources, and a diverse population of 450,000. The Town of Colonie is the center of this area, surrounded by the cities of Schenectady, Albany, and Troy.
Here are some of the ways the Friends have helped the library using the funds raised.
