Friends of the Libraries Sponsor Aqua Ducks Tour on May 3

Join the Friends of the Libraries, University at Albany, for a special tour through historic Albany on land and on the Hudson River on Wednesday, May 3! The trip through historic downtown Albany will take 45 minutes; there will also be a 30-minute journey on the Hudson River, to see many sites "off shore."

There will be an optional lunch, at the Albany Pump Station, after the trip. The trip begins at 10:30 am, at the Visitors’ Center, Quackenbush Square, downtown Albany. Parking is free. The lunch will be on your own, so you can order as much as you like, and enjoy the end of a pleasant day on an outing with the Friends of the Libraries.

Cost of the Aqua Duck tour is $16. Please contact Del Cummings, at 518-356-0377 or e-mail: delmagic1@aol. com. Reservations are due by April 21, 2006.
