One of our challenges in this year’s Summer Learning Program was for kids to share a favorite recipe that their family loves. And they did so … from breakfast to dinner to dessert! We were so happy to receive some submissions and have consolidated them into a file that is viewable and printable here:
Magician Mark Wood’s “Magical Fairy Tales” show is here! The video will be available to the Hudson Library for a couple of weeks. View it as many times as you like and share the link with friends and family who would enjoy it, too!
Today is the last day of our Summer Learning Program! Please submit all of your reading hours and pick up all of your prizes by 2 p.m. today (Saturday). Prizes will not be available after today. Thank you for participating in this summer’s program!
Week 11, FINAL WEEK! (August 10 – August 15), Mascot Map Clue:
Our dragon friend, Norbert, had a wonderful time exploring our beautiful town of Hudson. Now he has returned home to see all of his favorite librarians! Can you find him?
Remember to turn in your mascot maps by 2 p.m. on Saturday! (You may submit your map even if you did not find Norbert every week!) We have boxes for them both outside on the curbside table and also in the Children’s Room.
Our Summer Learning Program ends this Saturday, August 15, at 2 p.m.! All reading hours must be submitted and all prizes must be picked up by 2 p.m.!
Thanks to all of the families who participated in this year’s program, read lots and lots of books, and submitted entries for our summer challenges. We appreciate your participation during this unprecedented summer, and we hope that you enjoyed the program.
We will offer many virtual programs, performances, and storytimes this Fall, and we hope that you join us!

The ever-changing, fluid nature of the coronavirus is challenging, and the life that we live right now is likely very different than what a child – or anyone – feels comfortable with.
While we have no books in print at this time that deal directly with the virus and its impact specifically, we have found many free coronavirus-related online children’s ebooks that are readily viewable, and some are even printable.
Here are stories to consider sharing with your child. Some are fiction, and others are nonfiction. Most are geared for preschool and elementary-aged children:
