The Armory wore its party hat for the library’s one year celebration.
Thank you all: patrons, volunteers, board members, staff, Friends of the Hudson Area Library, musicians, dancers, programs presenters and video creators! Our Saturday, April 8 Open House: One Year at the Armory was a great success. We had a raucous, fun, community-oriented, history-exploring, book checking out, music-listening, dance-enjoying, video-viewing, people-watching, seeing-old-&-new-friends time! See our photos and video on Facebook and Instagram.

Everyone is invited to attend both meetings. Light refreshments will follow the meeting.
The library is graced by sculpture from the Hudson High School Sculpture Class. The works are predominantly paper maché with others in wood an tape. The works are in turn colorful and translucent, cartoons, abstractions, figurative, all fun to look at it.
Stop by and see the works in person during library operating hours. Thanks to the Hudson High School educators and students for allowing us to exhibit this collection of student artwork!

Congratulations to all the runners, walkers, and cyclists who participated in the annual Ghostly Gallop! More than 200 people participated with bikers beginning their day on Saturday in cold temperatures, but our beautiful Hudson Valley, at peak color, took their minds off cold fingertips. By the time the riders arrived at the half-way point, Riverview Café in Stuyvesant, the sun had warmed things up considerably.
Sunday’s later start date for the Kid’s 1-Mile Fun Run and 5K Walk/Run brought the mercury up to a perfect temperature for participants and viewers. The winners, Arianna Nilsson (22:25) and Daniel Ronsani (18:08) duplicated their finishing positions of 2015. They are now local legends, and the ones to beat next year.
We thank all who came out to support the Library! For a complete rundown of finishing times, go to www.facebook.com/GG5K2016.
