By the way, as far as our research shows, GPL is the only Library in the country to sell fishing and hunting licenses. Why do we do it? It’s a service to the community, and since our mission is “to provide quality library materials and services to our community for lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and enjoyment,” and so many of our users fish and hunt, we see it as a good fit.



If you have questions or comments about this service, please call Luanne Nicholson at our Public Information Office, 518.456.2400 x 112, or select “Public Information Officer” in the pull-down menu on our Contact Page.

Please note: We accept most major credit cards for sporting license purchases. The only exception is for purchase of Lifetime Licenses, which requires cash or a check.
