The Friends of the Hudson Library is a non-profit volunteer organization committed to supporting the library in all of its endeavors and in broadening the scope of services and activities. Since 1951, the Friends' goal has always been the same: "To be a group organized to better the services of the library to the community."

Friends will be holding its annual membership drive in January 2014. We are hoping you will join us not only in membership but also in volunteering.  We need sorters to decide the best donated books to put on our shelves in the book sale room and sales persons for the days of the sale.  We also invite your input on activities for fund raising for our scholarship fund and for equipment and services that  we provide for the library.

Why join the Friends?  Across the country, Friends groups support libraries in ways that keep the institutes special, and Hudson's Friends group is a prime example.  From sponsoring special events for adults and children to funding an Instructional Computer Lab, the Friends have assisted in bringing more services to our patrons. If you have questions about becoming a Friend, please call Membership Chairperson Tim Howlett at tphowl@roadrunner.com
