Just in time for the holiday season, the library’s History Room and the Friends of the Hudson Area Library will be partnering on a book sale in the community room. All books in the History Room collection have been vetted, organized and cataloged and duplicates and local history books outside of the purview of the History Room have been set aside for this sale. There are many books that are unique and valuable in this one time sale. All proceeds from the History Room sale will benefit the work and collection of the History Room.
The Friends of the Hudson Area Library will also be having their first book sale in the new library space. Books have been set aside for this purpose for the last year and a half. There are many current books, art books, and all books are in good condition. All proceeds from the Friends portion of the sale will benefit the Friends, who support library collections and programming.
There will also be homemade backed goods for sale during this event. So come out and support the library, get that unique book for someone on your shopping list, and enjoy a baked good!
Thanks to all who braved the 17 degree weather to join us at Cafe Le Perche for WHALE HO! last Thursday. It was a standing room only crowd! The grog was a nice bit of liquid warmth and the talk, led by whaling expert Carlo DeVito, was informative and lively. Although most of the conversation was based on the book The Wreck of the Whaleship Essex, DeVito included additional information specifically about Hudson – since it was such a whaling center in the mid-eighteen hundreds.
Book sales were brisk, but if you missed getting a copy, Kelley Drahushuk, owner of Spotty Dog Books and Ale, just sent us this e-mail:
If anyone wants a copy of this beautiful book, stop by the Spotty Dog in the next week or so – I have signed copies and am happy to support the library with your purchase. I had a great time. And the grog was indeed delicious.
Thanks to Cafe Le Perche for providing us with this warm and comfortable venue and for the delicious food. Thanks to the volunteers and, of course, all of you supporters!
