Library Summer Reading Program

Kids of any age up to 12th grade may register at either library beginning Monday, June 1, 2015, to count the days they read or listen to someone read books or magazines this summer and win prizes.  This year’s prizes include: book bags, books, food coupons, tickets to swim at the COOL! Pool, Blueberry Meadows coupons, and more.  All prizes must be picked up by August 22.

The Library offers programs every week on a wide variety of topics, from history and language to science and art.  Programs take place during mornings, afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays.  In keeping with this summer’s theme of “Every Hero Has a Story,” there are three programs for all ages at the Main Library:

  • Saturday, June 20, at 1:30 p.m. – the Knights in Shining Armor will present a demonstration of sword fighting and chivalry for the whole family. 

And, to highlight our local heroes in the present day: 

  • Thursday, June 18, at 10:30 a.m. – Albany Fire Department will bring a fire truck to Story Time.
  • Thursday, July 30, at 10:30 a.m. – Albany Police Dog Jager and Officer Nate Ard will visit Story Time.

Teen Volunteers:   Students who have completed 6th grade may work as Summer Volunteers assisting with children’s programs.  Pick up a Youth Volunteer Application at either library and return the completed form by Monday, June 29, in order to attend the mandatory orientation on Tuesday, June 30, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. or on Tuesday, July 7, from 4:30 to 6:00 at the Main Library.

Teen Marionette Troupe:  Students who are going into 6th through 12th grade may join the Marionette Troupe at the Carnegie Library to put on shows for young children in August. Mandatory rehearsals are Thursday, August 6, and Monday, August 10, from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.  Registration forms are available at either library or on our website on the Young Adult page.

Get To Know Oregon Sinister Distilling & Deluxe Brewing

Sinister Distilling Company and Deluxe Brewing Company

Deluxe Brewing
is the dream of Albany Steamworks, LLC, otherwise known as Eric “Howie” and Jamie Howard. The couple decided long ago that a brewstillery was exactly what they needed to start. After several years of research and the help of family, friends and the community, the Howard’s are realizing their dream.

Howie started homebrewing in 2005. He went down to the local homebrew shop, Corvallis Homebrew Supply, and got all the supplies he needed for his first extract beer. He did it in the kitchen and the steam soaked the cabinets with the aroma of hops and malt. It was love at first boil. He joined the homebrew club, Heart of the Valley Homebrewers, and started networking with more homebrew enthusiasts.

Howie did more and more brewing, and moved quickly onto an all-grain system. He won several awards for his beer, and became more active in the club. He was elected President and held the position for three years. Howie went to work part-time at a small microbrewery in Corvallis to learn what it takes to own a brewery.

In 2011, we began the journey of starting our own microbrewery. Since we live in Oregon, we are surrounded by amazing breweries with beers of every flavor. We’ve decided to focus on lagers.

It’s an exciting journey for us, and one that we are doing for the love of beer.

Sinister Distilling Company
Sinister Distilling Company is using a whiskey pot still from Portugal to produce fine whiskeys, rums and gin and whatever else that warms our sinister heart.
