THE FRIENDS OF THE HUDSON AREA LIBRARY was established in 1999 to assist the Hudson Area Association Library in providing programs and supplies to enhance library services for the communities of Hudson and Greenport. Over the years, our dedicated and energetic volunteers have been raising funds for and creating awareness of the Library by participating in and supporting community events.
The Hudson Area Association Library, like many small town and rural libraries in New York State, has a modest operating budget. It sustains itself year-to-year with operating funds from the communities it serves, through the generosity of individual and corporate donors and Friends like you!
The Friends is currently focusing our efforts on raising funds to grow the Library’s collection in all media types to support the core mission of literacy.
The Friends meet monthly on the third Wednesday at 6pm at the Library. We are always looking for new members and new ideas. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us. We look forward to meeting you!
