Lemons into Lemonade

In the Making Lemons Into Lemonade Category: Hudson Public Library has been closed for the summer so far, getting ready to open in their new location.
Not a great situation, especially for those summer readers, right? But Mary and Carol managed to work closely with the school this year, and got their library's reading record and schedule posted on the school's website this year.
Even better, the library is doing programming at the local assisted living center. Mary says she chose it because it has the biggest room, but the residents are very excited about attending the programs! Based on their developing relationship, the activity director at the center is looking forward to bringing a group of residents over for a library tour once it is open. I've often thought that programming for children/seniors together would be a wonderful fit, and it is exciting to see it happening right here in our system! Way to go, Hudson!
