Friends of the Hudson Library expands bookstore hours, announces board meeting

The Friends of the Hudson Library invites all book lovers to visit its bookstore, located just inside the front entrance of the Hudson Library & Historical Society. The bookstore is run by volunteers of the Friends of the Hudson Library, a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to benefit the library. Income from the sale of books, which are donated, directly benefits the library, most often for additional programming and collection acquisitions.

The bookstore has a wide variety of books for sale, organized by subject and age group, and reasonably priced. Cash, check and credit card (for purchases over $10) are accepted for payment.

The bookstore has expanded its hours recently and is open three days a week: Tuesdays, 2-5 p.m.; Thursdays 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; and Saturdays 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.). Book donations are accepted Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9-11 a.m., and Tuesdays, 5-6:30 p.m.

The friends also invite the community to attend its annual board meeting on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 9:15 a.m., at the library. The agenda will include committee reports and election of officers. Lynn Remly, president; Mary Keidel, treasurer; Beverly Dorson, volunteer coordinator; and Marilyn Orr, at-large member are up for reelection. Nominations will also be taken from the floor. Only members of the Friends may vote for board positions. All in attendance are encouraged to ask questions and make comments.
