We’re offering reading challenges and incentives for all ages June 3-August 5th, and we’re happy to offer online registration for the first time. You can register, track your reading progress, and complete challenges online. Kids can even design their own online avatar as part of the online options!

Make the Library your destination this summer; we are offering special events June-August every Tuesday from 1-2 pm that are family friendly and perfect for all ages.

Wisconsin author Nickolas Butler is coming to the Hudson Library! We are so excited to host him on June 1st and hear about his newest novel, The Hearts of Men. He will read some excerpts from his book, touch on the writing process, answer questions from the audience, and sign books for interested patrons.
