Free home test kits
The Hudson Library in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Health is offering free home Covid testing kits to those in need of them.  One package per family member, there are two tests in each box.  If you are ill or have symptoms please call us from your car as you pull up and we will bring them out and put them in the passenger window.  If you are fine, you may come in to the front desk and request them.  Please don't pay the Retail Outlet prices when we have them FREE for you here.

To the right of this page, you will see MEL.  MEL is the Michigan Electronic Library.  Through this you can order materials that you would like to read that our library does not own.  The main thing is before you order, please....please....please check our library catalog first.  Sometimes MEL doesn't tell you that we own it, so it is very important to check our listings first.  The RIDES service will deliver your MEL item to us, we will process it and then call you when it is ready for pick up. This service is provided in cooperation with your local library, the Woodland's Library Cooperative, Library of Michigan and Midwest Library Collaborative System.
