Living Library

  • Hudson Area Library 51 North 5th Street Hudson, NY, 12534 United States (map)

presented by the Hudson Area Library in collaboration with Drop Forge & Tool.

During this free public event participants can meet with experts in various fields. Learn how to conserve old family photographs and documents, research local family history, make herbal tea and discover its benefits, sew a button onto pretty much anything, find and download useful apps for your phone or device, properly care for and display the American flag, and more!

The library is a place to find information through books, lectures, and online sources. For two hours on this Saturday in March you can learn practical information and skills directly from members of our Hudson community -- open books in human form! Experts on hand will include Jonathan Simons, real estate photographer, web page designer, photo retoucher and restorer; Lauren Giambrone, community herbalist, medicine maker and educator; Jeff Rigby, a library, museum and archive conservationist and bookbinder; Tod Wohlfarth, graphic designer; Lisa Durfee, vintage clothier, photographer and mudlark; John Craig, local history researcher; Perfect Ten teens, crafters of cool things; and Dan Shaughnessy, member of Elks Lodge #787.

This event is free and open to the public. This event will take place throughout the library, all of which is wheelchair accessible.

The mission of the Hudson Area Library is to enrich the quality of life in the chartered service area by providing educational, recreational, aesthetic, cultural, and informational programs, services, and materials to all our citizens. For more information: or call (518) 828-1792.
