Children’s Story and Craft Hour: Where’s Waldo

waldoflierThis Saturday, July 30, from 11am-12pm, join us for a special Where’s Waldo themed Children’s Story and Craft Hour. Come learn “cut and paste” – the art of collage – as our special guest, Theresa Shanley Corrigan of Artfully Yours in Cairo, leads the children through the creation of their very own Waldo collage. Our Where’s Waldo story and craft hour is open to children of all ages but is especially recommended for ages 4 and up.

This special event is being held in conjunction with the final weekend of the Where’s Waldo Scavenger Hunt, a community-wide Shop Local scavenger hunt hosted by our friends at The Spotty Dog with participation from 20+ merchants/locations in Hudson – including the library!

Come find Waldo at the library, join the Waldo Collage making fun on Saturday, and stop by The Spotty Dog on Sunday at 12:30pm for the Where’s Waldo celebration!

Calling all Story Tellers/Writers/Bloggers….

Help us tell the story of why the Library is important.

As many of you know, we are raising money towards new furnishings and fixtures to be used when we move to our new facility, The Armory on the corner of 5th Street and State, sometime in 2015 (We hope!).  To that end, we are working to let the public know how important a Library can be.

We are starting a program featuring our members and friends writing short articles (no more than 300 words – a page) to be published on the library website.  We want to showcase all the ways Libraries are important – whether to children or adults, English speakers or those with English as a second language, whether at the Hudson Area Library, or a Library from your past.

 Twice monthly, we will publish a story and hope to be able to Tweet excerpts and run the feature on Facebook, too. 

Don’t worry if your grammar isn’t perfect.  Don’t worry if your sentences get a bit muddled.  We’ll fix it up so it’s perfect before it’s published.  The most important thing is to tell stories about your Library experiences

  • Do you have fond memories of a childhood Librarian? 
  • Did you look forward to the weekly visit to your childhood Library? 
  • Do you rely on your local Library for business-related information? 
  • Have classes at the Library helped you with a hobby or a new career? 
  • Did you discover an author accidentally that changed your life? 

There are lots and lots of stories to tell. What’s yours?

We’re eager to enlist as many in the community as possible.  This isn’t an on-going commitment.  Volunteers will be contacted and asked to write a story (or two).  No more than that. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact Library Director Emily Chameides at 518.828.1792 or via e-mail at echameides@hudsonarealibrary.org.
