In conjunction with the Troy Public Library's rebranding efforts, the library will be launching a new website, troypl.org. We have focused on making the user experience as seamless as possible. Utilizing a responsive design, the new website will look great and function properly, regardless of the device you use. Our current site will automatically re-direct to the new site once the site is launched. Keep an eye out between now and June 1 for a brand new look!
