Program Description: The library and Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood are proud to announce another 5-week series of High Five! Families with a child, birth to five, can join a supportive community and learn everyday, fun activities to help build their child’s reading skills! Trips, free books & prizes! October 27 Our last High Five! of the fall season will be with folkteller & performance artist Pamela Badila and Library Exploration educator Eileen Ordu. We will have a special Halloween story hour (not too scary!) and a Halloween party for our High Five! families. Lunch, free children’s books & door prizes!

Trips to Philip Apple Orchard and Dalmatian Day at FASNY Museum of Firefighting and a Halloween party are some of the special events planned for High Five! families. Participants will receive free books and prizes each week! Lunch will be provided. Older siblings are welcome in the library during the program.

The Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood is thrilled to be partnering with the Hudson Area Library for the High Five! early literacy program. The GHPN works to support children and families in the Hudson City School District from birth through college to career. Promise Neighborhood, established in 2011 through a Planning Grant from the US Department of Education, has built a strong foundation of partnerships and programs supporting families in the Hudson community and beyond.
