Children’s Story and Craft Hour: Where’s Waldo

waldoflierThis Saturday, July 30, from 11am-12pm, join us for a special Where’s Waldo themed Children’s Story and Craft Hour. Come learn “cut and paste” – the art of collage – as our special guest, Theresa Shanley Corrigan of Artfully Yours in Cairo, leads the children through the creation of their very own Waldo collage. Our Where’s Waldo story and craft hour is open to children of all ages but is especially recommended for ages 4 and up.

This special event is being held in conjunction with the final weekend of the Where’s Waldo Scavenger Hunt, a community-wide Shop Local scavenger hunt hosted by our friends at The Spotty Dog with participation from 20+ merchants/locations in Hudson – including the library!

Come find Waldo at the library, join the Waldo Collage making fun on Saturday, and stop by The Spotty Dog on Sunday at 12:30pm for the Where’s Waldo celebration!

Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood Comes to Life

Natural_WTP_coverOur friends at The Spotty Dog are pleased to announce the only local appearance of Kathryn Aalto, landscape designer and author, to discuss and sign her new book, The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A Walk Through the Forest That Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood. Please join us for this free event on Tuesday, October 13 at 7pm at The Spotty Dog, 440 Warren Street, Hudson. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the library.

The book takes readers through an exploration of the real landscape of Ashdown Forest, shares iconic moments from the Winnie-the-Pooh books, and situates them in the places that exist today. In the delightful narrative, enriched with E.H. Shepard’s original illustrations, hundreds of color photographs, and Milne’s own words, you will rediscover your favorite characters and the magical place they call home.
