The new hours for the library are:

Tuesday & Wednesday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Thursday & Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At 1 p.m., Pamela Badila, "matriarch of the Badila clan and co-founder, with her late husband Elombe, of the Diata Diata International Folkloric Theatre," will present Folktales & Stories for Children & Families, featuring traditional stories from around the world. This special story hour, giving families the opportunity to explore tales from different cultures, will be a regular feature of Sunday at the library, happening each week at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Also this Sunday, the History Room will offer patrons the opportunity to find themselves or a parent or grandparent in the library's extensive collection of Hudson High School yearbooks, spanning more than a century, from 1914 to 2017, and have their picture taken alongside the graduation photo. Local photographer Tom Buckner has volunteered his services for the project. To make an appointment for a photo session, email firstname.lastname@example.org, providing your name, the yearbook date, and the name of the person in the graduation photo, and the library will schedule an appointment.
At 4 p.m., a trio of bassoonists--John Douglas Ferrigno, Cornelia McGiver, and Nora Post--called NorthWinds will perform in the main room at the library. In the intimate setting, where the audience and performers have an opportunity to exchange thoughts, the ensemble will explore the jaunty, moody, serene, and serious natures of this lesser known instrument.
All of the events on Sunday are free. The Hudson Area Library is located at 51 North Fifth Street.
