Are you getting the most out of the apps on your tablet or mobile device? “Apps,” or useful software applications that can be easily downloaded to customize your device, have created a common ground between older persons, their children and their grandchildren.

Quiet Midwest city?  Think again!  See Hudson through a different prism as you go undercover with Archivist, Gwen Mayer, who will guide you through Hudson and bring to life the stories of a speakeasy, bank robbery, a woman of ill-repute & more. 

Walking tours slow us down and give our senses a chance to connect with our surroundings.  A guided tour can open cultural windows different than those you'd encounter exploring a destination on your own.  The Library's walking tours fill quickly.  Be sure to sign-up online early so that you don't miss this new tour.
