Summer Project Ideas at the Hudson Public Library

If your summer plans include a vacation, we have travel guides, including the new Iowa guides. If you want to try growing vegetables to offset that food bill, we have lots of great books for gardening success. If it’s time to perk up your yard, we have some landscape design materials. Become a grill master with one of our many excellent cookbooks. If you are looking for a little less work and a little more fun, learn to play the guitar, draw, or paint, all with books you can find in the library. Best of all, the “Summer Book Releases” list is completed and available at the front desk.     

Library of Things

As a part of the Library of Things, a collection of non-traditional items, the Hudson Public Library now has even more to offer! Sporting equipment currently available for checkout, includes a football, basketball, soccer ball, volleyball, disc golf discs, pickleball rackets and balls, Spikeball, bocce ball, Bucketball and croquet sets, and a floor stand bicycle tire pump. Newest to the collection is a daypack set up for family hikes. The pack includes a compass, first aid kit, flashlights, and rain ponchos. Binoculars are available to check out separately. We also have a new set of 3-fold laminated charts that are identification guides for plants, birds, insects, and more!

The Library of Things sports collection, sponsored by the Hudson Public Library Foundation, allows patrons have access to items needed only occasionally, explore a new hobby or sport, or enjoy outdoor group family games. For more information on the collection visit the Library at 401 5th St. or call us at 319-988-4217.
