Hudson Public Library

Hudson Public Library Hudson Public Library Many believe that a Town's library is its heart. Throughout the 20th century, the Hudson Public Library was a faithful, expanding influence for literacy, for dissemination of information, and for the pure joy of reading.

โ€œWhy do I read?
I just can't help myself.
I read to learn and to grow, to laugh
and to be motivated.
I read to understand things I've never
been exposed to.
I read when I'm crabby, when I've just
said monumentally dumb things to the
people I love.
I read for strength to help me when I
feel broken, discouraged, and afraid.
I read when I'm angry at the whole
world.
I read when everything is going right.
I read to find hope.
I read because I'm made up not just of
skin and bones, of sights, feelings,
and a deep need for chocolate, but I'm
also made up of words.
Words describe my thoughts and what's
hidden in my heart.
Words are alive--when I've found a
story that I love, I read it again and
again, like playing a favorite song
over and over.
Reading isn't passive--I enter the
story with the characters, breathe
their air, feel their frustrations,
scream at them to stop when they're
about to do something stupid, cry with
them, laugh with them.
Reading for me, is spending time with a
friend.
A book is a friend.
You can never have too many.โ€

I miss the staff picks! Any suggestions for a scary/ thriller for October?
What are the return days right now. Last I knew was Monday and sat, until it's full that day.
Lots of fun, educational stuff out there in these times.... Here's one from Mo Willems:
Tried visiting the scarecrows this morning only to find they were all destroyed and tossed about the park. โ˜น
