The Hudson Area Library announces a new reading group for parents. This book group will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month at the Hudson Area Library, starting on Saturday, May 25th from 10am-12pm.

The reading group is tailored for parents of kids of all ages who wish to connect with others through books and life in general. Participants will discuss parenting books, adult fiction, children’s literature, teen literature, and more. For the first meeting, parents are encouraged to bring a book to share with the group that they or their children have enjoyed. The June book club pick will be decided at the first meeting. Babies and young children are welcome to accompany their parents, and children who can use the bathroom independently are welcome to join Ms. Janice in the library’s children’s room for stories, crafts, music, movement, and free play.

This reading group is co-sponsored and facilitated by Linda of Green Momma Bear. For more information contact Linda at greenmommabear@yahoo.com or call the library at 518-828-1792.
