Thank you!

We are grateful to our friends and neighbors in Hudson for your overwhelming support of our community-based funding initiative. We are humbled by your generosity and thrilled that so many of you agree that a great public library is an essential part of a great community. We look forward to increasing our hours, programs and services in the new year with your support!

Thank you also to our friends and neighbors in Greenport who voted in favor of our community-based funding initiative. As of the close of polls, we were down by 19 votes in Greenport, but there are still over 100 absentee ballots to count. We’ll share the final results once absentees are counted. [UPDATE: The proposition was not passed in Greenport.]

Every vote counts and we thank all who voted YES on our community-based funding initiative for their support.

If you have not yet visited our beautiful facility at 5th and State Street, we encourage you to stop by. If you have ideas for programs and services you would like to see offered in the new year, please reach out to us at info@hudsonarealibrary.org. And make sure you have subscribed to our newsletter so you will be among the first to hear about our upcoming programs!
