The library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and is closed Saturday and Sunday.
It will also be closed from Thursday, November 25 to Friday, November 26 for Thanksgiving.
Storm damage update
The cleaning is well advanced but users will probably not be able to access the library building before the beginning of 2022. The delay in reopening is linked to the replacement of the carpet. The scope of the project requires the City to solicit calls for tenders from companies and this takes a considerable amount of time. Work on the exterior wall and roof of the library will not begin until the spring, and supply chain issues may affect progress. Damage estimates are not yet available.
Full curbside service to retrieve library materials is available and programs are run offsite with support from the Phipps Center for the Arts, YMCA, Hudson School District, Hop & Barrel, Faith Community Church and Urban Olive & Vine.
Community members can find dates and locations on the library’s website, Facebook page, or call us at 715.386.3101.
