Take Your Child to the Library Day was started by a Connecticut children’s librarian in 2012 and this year will include more than 350 libraries. Join us for this special event on Saturday, February 1st from 10am-3pm and check out everything the Hudson Area Library has to offer children and families: books, movies, crafts, games, homework help, special events, and a safe, welcoming place to spend time together.
