Hudson Children’s Book Festival, May 4

Hudson-Poster-2019

The Hudson Children’s Book Festival, established in 2009, is held each year in the city of Hudson, NY, and strives to create, sustain, and nurture a culture of literacy in partnership with our community and schools. This free, public event fosters a love of reading as families meet and greet world-class creators of books for children of all ages.

The featured author for 2019 is Seymour Simon, whom the New York Times called “the dean of the [children’s science] field,” and is the author of over 300 highly acclaimed science books, more than seventy-five of which have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). Simon has introduced tens of millions of children to a staggering array of subjects, and says: “I’m more interested in arousing enthusiasm in kids than I am in teaching the facts. The facts may change, but that enthusiasm for exploring the world will remain with them for the rest of their lives.”

An Update on the New Lebanon Library’s New Mascot

At the beginning of the year, the New Lebanon Library invited local students (ages 5-18) to create a new mascot for the library. The winning design, “Calvin the book” created by local 4th grader Logan, was revealed in March, and now we have an update from the library. Calvin now has color and a few minor details (see below), and will soon become a regular fixture around the library.

Secondly, the plush version of Calvin is in production, and the winning designer, Logan, will receive his copy of Calvin and the New Lebanon Library will have their own version for patrons to check out and take on trips. It is the library’s hope that patrons will have many fun adventures with Calvin and share them with the library!
