Hudson Area Library and The Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood are proud to announce High Five!, our 5-week early literacy family program. Our new winter session includes “Weaving Tales & Oral Traditions to Develop Literacy”, “Cooking as a Means of Encouraging Literacy in Your Child” and “Stuck Indoors? Literacy Ideas for Snowy Days”.

The program begins with Story Time in the library with High Five! facilitator Kathy Mabb and special guest readers including Briggin Scharf of Rolling Grocer 19 and performers & master educators Pamela Badila and Abby Lappen. Crafts and literacy activities, with an emphasis on dictated writing, follows. Families will also have the opportunity to explore the hundreds of high-quality children’s books available for check-out at the library. Participants will receive free books and prizes each week and gift certificates to Rolling Grocer 19 will be awarded to all families with excellent attendance! Lunch is also provided and we will be emphasizing healthy foods kids like to eat.

Transportation to the library is available upon request. To register for High Five!, email programs@hudsonarealibrary.org, call 518-828-1792 x101, or stop by the desk at the Hudson Area Library. This program is free and open to all families with children five and under (older siblings are also welcome to attend), and is wheelchair accessible.
