Teens and Preteens


summer reading



The library has a variety of programs this summer for preteens and teens. See the Summer Reading page for more information.



The Hudson Area Joint Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens in 6th – 12th grade committed to helping the Library and the community.  Members meet the second Thursday of each month from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. to help with the planning and implementation of teen programs, recommend materials for the library to purchase and talk about ways to make the teen library experience better.

Mission Statement:

The Mission of the Teen Advisory Board is to provide teens a place to express their opinions, make friends, and connect with the community, while volunteering at the Library.  Teens come together to assist the Library in developing and implementing library youth and teen programs, and create a fun and comfortable atmosphere for teens at the Library.

To join, fill out a TAB application and turn it into the Youth Services desk. For questions, call 715-386-3101.

Five Hudson teens won the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) 2015 Teen Video Challenge for the state of Wisconsin.  The Teen Video Challenge is a national competition encouraging teens to get involved with promoting summer reading at their public library with a focus on the CSLP 2015 Summer Reading slogan, “Unmask.”  Winning videos were selected at the state level to be recognized as an official CSLP Teen Video. Twenty-six states and over one hundred teens participated in the creation of these winning videos.

The teens, lead by Julia Asmus, are all current or former members of the Hudson Area Joint Library’s Teen Advisory Board. Their video, “Dewey Doo and the Case of the Stolen Library Books”, parodied the classic cartoon in an attempt to “unmask” the mystery of books disappearing from the Hudson Library.  To view the winning video, please go to YouTube. Video winners from other states can be viewed at the CSPL website.
