Book-Themed Art Contest!

Do you love books AND art? The inaugural Hudson Area Library Book-Themed Art Contest will be right up your alley! Create a piece of art inspired by a book of your choosing and drop if off at the library by October 31 to have your art featured in the library and on the library’s social media accounts – and for a chance to have your art featured in the Hudson Area Library’s 2022 calendar!

Submissions for the calendar will be evaluated by age group (14-18 years, 11-13 years, 8-12 years, 5-7 years, 4 years & under). Kids whose submissions are selected for the calendar will receive a free 2022 Hudson Area Library calendar in November!
