Book Sale at the Hudson Area Library

In recent months, the collection in the History Room of the Hudson Area Library has been vetted, organized, and cataloged. As an outcome of this process, books that are duplicates or determined to be "outside the purview of the History Room" will be offered for sale in the Community Room of the library on Thursday, November 30, and Friday, December 1. The sale is from 3 to 7 p.m. each day. Many of the books offered by the History Room are unique and valuable.

In addition to books, the History Room is offering for sale a limited number of prints of a 1923 view of Hudson from a dirigible. Two prints, framed to archival standards, will be sold for $450 each, and six unframed prints for $150 each. The unframed image is 23 x 35 inches. 

Partnering with the History Room for this sale are the Friends of the Hudson Area Library. The Friends have been collecting books for the past year and a half and now have a selection of current books and art books, all in good condition, which will be offered for sale in the Friends' first book sale in the new library space. 

For those who miss the good old days of the library bake sale, there will also be fresh, homemade baked goods on offer. 

Proceeds from the sale of deaccessioned History Room materials and prints will benefit the work and the collection of the History Room. Proceeds from the sale of books and baked goods benefits the Friends of the Hudson Area Library and supports the programming and the general collections of the library.
