Register for the 2023 Summer Reading Game

Great For Kids: Summer Reading At The Hen Hud Free Library!

The Hendrick Hudson Free Library announces our annual children’s Summer Reading Game Program! The theme for 2023 is “All Together Now”,  with fun activities, games, and prizes, all created to make reading irresistible!

The Program encourages kids to choose reading that interests THEM. Naturally, knowledge, vocabulary & comprehension increase. Families can enjoy reading stories together, (or having your child reading to YOU). Reluctant readers are always welcomed with interactive experiences that motivate and engage them. When all is read and done, kids realize that the fun of reading can happen at any time, anywhere…even during summer! Plus children get a head start on the new school year when they hit the ground reading!

Registration begins Saturday, June 24th for children in pre-K through 8th Grade. Join our kickoff program at 11am that day with Talewise mixing storytelling & science! Hope to see you this summer! It’s Beyond Words!

Throughout the adventure, volunteers will help the performer conduct several exciting science experiments that bring this story to life! Together we’ll explore Newton’s Laws of Motion, air pressure, chemical reactions, and more! All ages are welcome! Register today!





Teen Stitchers’ Club

Tuesday, June 27th at 6:00 p.m.

The adults have a stitchers’ club . . . why not the teens? Perfect for the Summer Reading Program theme of “All Together Now,” come join your friends to create your own Teen Stitchers’ Club! All skill levels accepted. Those who have never crocheted or knitted before will be taught the basics. Those who already have either skill will be given a project to benefit the community, such as creating fingerless gloves for dialysis patients or creating baby blankets or lap blankets for those in need. Yarn, crochet hooks, and instructions will be provided. Knitting needles are not included, but feel free to bring your own. Registration for one or multiple sessions.
