A benchmark in the Campaign for the new Hudson Area Library will take place on Saturday, May 3rd at 11 am. There will be a short ceremony to raise a “progress sign” at the site of the current library, 400 State Street. The sign will keep a running tally of funds being raised to defray the costs of the new library’s interior. The public, including residents of Stockport, Greenport, and Hudson, is invited to attend. It is anticipated that local and State officials, as well as prominent members of the business community, will stop by to show their support.
“This sign is meant to keep the community updated,” said Board of Trustees President Mark Orton. “We are eager to raise our visibility, and choosing this particular day for the sign-raising will help accomplish that.” The Hudson Children’s Book Festival, which brings more than 4,000 people to the Junior and Senior High Schools (many via the shuttle stop at the library’s Fourth and State Streets location), will take place on the same day.
