Out of fear that the books might spread COVID-19, the Little Free Libraries positioned around town were emptied of books in the middle of March and have been closed ever since.
To make up for the loss, tomorrow, on Saturday, June 27, Hudson Little Free Libraries is collaborating with the Hudson Area Library, Early Learning and Literacy Network, and other community partners to hold a Free Book Day, from noon to 4:00 p.m., at Front and Warren streets, in front of the Chamber of Commerce.
There will be books for everyone--from pre-readers to adults. The Hudson Area Library is providing bags, prepacked with games and activities. Everyone can add two books to their bag. The books will be laid out on tables, organized by age level, in a single layer. Participants will point to the books they want, and the books will be handed to them. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided.
If it rains tomorrow, as the forecasts indicate it might, Free Book Day will take place on Sunday, June 28, same time, same place.
Update: Gossips has been informed that, because of bad weather forecasts, this event has been canceled for this weekend, to be scheduled for some other, still undetermined time.
