Story time
Story time with Carol Grise at Hudson Library

Books for children are located in a unique children's area with puzzles, toys, and children's magazines.

The Library provides weekly story times for pre-schoolers and a summer reading program. During the school year, story time is on Thursdays at 10:00 and 10:40 am. Please choose one time.

Five pre-school groups attend story time during the school year: Highlands Head Start, Bright Discoveries, 2 from Highlands Child Development Center, and Methodist Preschool.

The Children's Area is very inviting with its "grassy" carpeting and over-sized stuffed animals.

When classes are full, we are likely to have over 65 children on Thursdays. There is no story time in May or August.

In case of inclement weather (rain/snow/ice), please contact the library to verify story time schedule.

The Hudson Library is supported by donations, Bookworm Bookstore sales and fundraisers.  To learn more click here.
