Recording: Wednesdays, 4pm Broadcast: Fridays, 7pm and Sundays, 9am on WGXC 90.7FM
Our youth radio crew records their weekly Bound By Books radio show remotely. Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings, after the local news, Emilia, Lina, Georgia, AJ, Mashuda, Fatheah, and our library director Emily Chameides discuss books they love, books they’re currently reading, and other tween and teen media and literary topics. Bound By Books has been broadcasting on WGXC since 2011. In addition to the weekly show, past Bound by Books radio shows can be accessed online via the WGXC Audio Archive.
Join us for Radio Studio at the Hudson Area Library! We don’t usually hear the voices and perspectives of youth in the news, but young people have a lot to say. If you’ve ever wanted to be a reporter or a DJ, or you’re just curious about making radio, this is your chance to be the media! We’ll learn hands-on radio and broadcasting skills, use digital audio recorders, come up with story ideas, conduct interviews, and broadcast our voices on WGXC: 90.7-FM.

On Friday, May 6 at 3:30pm join us in welcoming Kwame Alexander, author of The Crossover (winner of the Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King award) and Booked to the Hudson Area Library.
Kwame Alexander is known for his signature blend of fast-paced verse combined with sports lingo and rhythmic raps, with which he creates an accessible mix of drama and poetry. A former reluctant reader himself, Alexander hopes his books will show young readers, in particular African-American boys, that books can be as exciting and fun as sports or video games. He travels the world each year speaking to young people about the power of books and poetry. We are pleased to join the Hudson Children’s Book Festival in welcoming him to Hudson. Continue reading →
