Support the Library


You may think that the library is entirely supported by tax funds. This is not the case. Less than 45% of our library’s annual operating budget comes from government funds. We depend on generous contributions from individuals, businesses, and foundations to make up the balance of our budget. The library is a community asset that needs community support. 

How to make a donation:

  • Donate online using your debit or credit card.
  • Send a check made out to the Hudson Area Library to 51 N. 5th Street, Hudson, NY 12534.
  • Do you pay your bills using online banking services? Consider adding the library to your monthly list! A monthly donation of $10 or $20 is very meaningful to the library. You can set up a monthly donation through the donate link above or through your personal bill paying services.

Thank you for supporting your library!
