UPDATE – SOLD OUT! Please note there will be a wait list for the event beginning at 5pm on October 17.  To get on the day-of wait list go to the Hudson Area Library at 5:00pm and you will be given a number. Return to the Library at 5:45pm to fill any empty seats. You must be present when your number is called to get a seat.

The History of Hudson’s Merchants & Whalers by Carl Whitbeck, part of the Hudson Area Library’s Local History Speaker series and being done in collaboration with Hudson Hall as part of their Hudson’s Merchants & Whalers series, will cover the commerce of Hudson from the time of its inception as a city in 1785 to the early 1960’s and through to the present. Mr. Whitbeck, a local resident whose family has deep roots in the area, will be displaying and discussing items from his own extensive local history collection.

Established by whalers and merchants from Nantucket, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island, Hudson has had many incarnations: as a safe harbor for maritime commerce, an industrial city with foundries, mills, cement plants, and factories; and now as a vibrant, artistic city who values its historic architecture, working with its diverse community to decide how it should be defined now and into the future.

Free Escape Room Adventure at Hudson Area Library, Oct 14

The Hudson Area Library is hosting a Free Escape Room Adventure on Monday, October 14th. After the immense popularity of the Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council’s escape room escapade this past June, Altered Zone NY, the council will host another opportunity for members of the community to get in on the “getting-out” fun.

The year is 2100, and the world is left reeling after a suspicious spacecraft appears in the sky over Hudson, NY. A team is chosen to make first contact, and to craft a peace treaty with the “Visitors.” Unfortunately, due to a mistranslation during talks, the team is imprisoned and now war with the Visitors is imminent! Trapped in an alien crater, the team has only 15 minutes to escape, fix their mistake, and warn everyone before the attacks start. The fate of mankind rests on THEIR shoulders.

The game is limited to 15 minutes, and the team that has the shortest time will win a special prize.

The Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council is composed of youth ages 8-12 who create and host library events for their peers and community.

DATE/TIME:
Monday, October 14, 2019 / 11am – 3pm

LOCATION:
Hudson Area Library (Community Room)
51 N. 5th St. (at State St.)
Hudson, NY 12534
