About the library

Library History: 100 years ago in Hudson.

The Hudson Public Library was organized in 1922, being sponsored by the Women’s Study Club, with Mrs. H.L. Fitch and Mrs. Horace Waldorf serving on the library committee. It was quite a problem to raise money to carry on this project, therefore candy sales, basketball games, donations solicited from various organizations in the community were some of the means resorted to, in this venture. With the money thus obtained and the gifts of a number of books from individuals, the library was opened in the old community building. At first various members of the Study Club took turns serving as librarians, but  later it was decided that  a permanent librarian was needed and Mrs. Louise D. Wilson became the first to fill this position.
