K-Kids – a Service Club for Kids
Our K-Kids group is a community service club for kids in grades 3-6. We meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 pm on Zoom right now, but will meet at the library when it is safe to do so. Together we run our own meetings, manage our money, and decide on our service projects. We are learning that by working together we can make a difference in our community.
If you would like to join us or learn more about us please email joanbushman@

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
You are invited to participate in our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program! The concept is simple and the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your little one starts kindergarten. Don’t be intimidated – if you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. The key is perseverance so let’s make it exciting! When your child reaches a milestone, stop by the Hudson Area Public Library for a small reward (stickers, books). We will help you track your progress and provide rewards along the way!
To register, stop by the Youth Services Desk and ask a librarian the next time you visit the Library.
Who can participate?
Any child from birth until they enter Kindergarten.
How does the program work?
Just sign-up and track your reading in your online log (or paper log, if you prefer). For each milestone, come in and pick up your child’s prize.
Thanks to Hudson Area Library Foundation and the Friends of the Hudson Area Public Library for their generous sponsorship of this program.
