Children’s Room Refresh

“Pardon Our Dust” will be the mantra starting Monday, August 1, when a refresh is slated to begin on the Hudson Library & Historical Society’s first floor Children’s Room. The project will be done in two phases and should be completed before the fall is over.


“The Children’s Room enhancements are in response to community input gathered during our strategic planning that revealed a desire for improved spaces for both interactive and collaborative learning, more accessible shelving and a fun atmosphere that promotes early literacy. After eleven years of heavy use the Children’s Room was beginning to show how much it was loved,” Library Executive Director E. Leslie Polott explains. “Every effort is being made to reduce the impact this will have on access to the materials for our customers. Some of our most popular items will be available in the Library’s rotunda, and the rest will be accessible in a reduced section of the Children’s Room while the construction is underway.”


No reduction is service will occur during the construction, as Story Times will be shifted to the Flood Family Meeting Room during the fall sessions. Patrons are encouraged to ask for assistance with locating materials during this transition period or to place holds on materials online at and be notified when they become available for pick up.
