The Albion Municipal Library and Heritage Center was built in 2007, and an entire room was dedicated to perserving the history

of our town. The Heritage Room contains rotating quarterly displays selected by volunteer, Lynne Borton, and we have an online

catalog of all items, text, and pictures. See PDF links of Heritage Room catalog and pictures of our current Tools & Toys display below.
