Library is closed until May 15, 2020
The Hudson Library is closed upon the Governor's Executive Order.  We will be closed at least until May 15th at 11:59 pm.   During this closed time we are unable to do curbside or home delivery.  Our website hosts the links to OVERDRIVE, MANGO LANGUAGES, SCHOLASTIC BOOKFLIX, ABCMOUSE, NEW YORK TIMES, CONSUMER REPORTS. All of these are available with your login, library card number & last name all lowercase.  MEL requesting is not available at this time.  If you click on the Library Catalog above here in the green bar, you will find all of the books we own and that you are welcome to borrow.  When in the catalog area you will see in the top right hand corner a place to log in so you can renew or reserve your books.  If you do not have a library card, the right hand square will allow you to apply for one.  Both of these actions on your part will send your information to the library and we will process the requests as quickly as possible and will call you when your login is ready to use.  If you have any issues or concerns please do not hesitate to call us, 517-448-3801, and we will reply when we come in to work on necessary things.
