The Linn Genealogy Research Room (LGS Library) is open when volunteers are available to staff the Room and the Albany Public Library on 14th Avenue is open. Check the Volunteer Schedule calendar for days and hours when someone has volunteered to staff the LGS Library.

Volunteers sign up for three hour shifts each day the Albany Public Library is open. However, some shifts may not have a staff volunteer, so the LGS Library may not be open even though the Albany Public Library is open.

  • Sunday: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
