A Resource for Gallatin: The New Hudson Area Library

The new Hudson Area Library drew a large crowd of area residents to mark its opening, hear from local leaders and walk through to see the resources available to the community.

The opening marked the completion of the transition from Armory to center of study and learning.

The event was attended by Hudson Mayor Tiffany Hamilton, Daniel Kent, Director of Foundation Initiatives of the Galvan Foundation, Assembly Woman Didi Barrett and Congressman Chris Gibson.

“It shows what we can do as a community,” said Hudson Mayor Tiffany Hamilton.  “I know this is going to be an anchor for the community.”

The President of the Board Of Trustees of the Hudson Area Library, David Murphy, was the ribbon cutter along with Library Director, Emily Chameides.  Local children attending participated in the event by helping to hold the ribbon during the cutting ceremony.

In addition to over 22,000 books the library offers 24 computer stations, free Wi-Fi, domestic and foreign movies, magazines and a historical room, a resource on Hudson and the surrounding area.

“Together we have developed more than a traditional library, we’ve developed an early education center, a technology center, an event space, a teen center and so much more,” Daniel Kent stated.

This Library is one of fifteen libraries that form the Mid-Hudson Library System.   Library cardholders can access any of the libraries in the system, providing a strong network of educational sources.
