Many believe that a Town’s library is its heart. Throughout the 20th century, the Hudson Public Library was a faithful, expanding influence for literacy, for dissemination of information, and for the pure joy of reading. The building and the collection it houses have grown to incorporate the needs of our growing and changing community.
As we enter the new century, the Library Department is determined to remain a dynamic influence, committed to furthering access to information and knowledge through advancements in information services—both high tech and low tech.
The Library Department has renewed its commitment to children by providing a pleasant environment to foster the love of reading for all ages. Stemming the tide of illiteracy is our highest priority.
The Hudson Public Library Gifts and Grants Fund
Established as a tax-exempt nonprofit organization, these funds are managed by the Board of Trustees who oversee expenditures. Income from the fund is used to enhance, enrich and supplement the quality and excellence of the Library. Donors may earmark donations for specific areas of interest, donate in memory of someone, or otherwise indicate how the gift is to be used. Charitable bequests are often deductible against federal estate taxes to the full value of the donation. Checks can be made out to “Hudson Public Library Gifts and Grants” and either mailed or presented in person. Or you can call the Library Director at 978-568-9644 x14 to discuss a donation. Thank you!
A Tradition of Excellence
Your gift will enable the Library to continue its tradition of excellence. Donations may be made in cash, life insurance, or stocks. Planned giving can provide tax benefits for the donor. Ask the Library Director for more information.
