Support the Library


You may think that our library is entirely supported by tax funds. This is not the case. Less than 45% of the library’s annual operating budget comes from government funds. The library depends on generous contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations to make up the balance of our budget.

The library is a community asset that needs community support. All donations are welcome no matter how small.

  • donate onlineSend a check made out to the Hudson Area Library.
  • Donate online using your debit or credit card.
  • Do you pay your bills using online banking services? Consider adding the Library to your monthly list. A small $10 or $20 contribution is very meaningful to the Library. This is a fairly painless way of doing something you would like to do automatically.

Volunteer – Support the Library by Donating Your Time and Energy

Volunteers are key to the functioning of the library. They do everything from greeting visitors, to checking books and materials in and out, to providing programs for children and others. If you would like to learn more about being a volunteer, visit our Volunteer page.
