Hudson Public Library

3 Washington Street
Hudson, MA 01749


History :
Hudson Public Library began to serve the public late in 1867 with 720 volumes. The very same citizen, for whom the town was named, the Honorable Charles Hudson, inaugurated free library services in Hudson.

The Library was located in several different sites throughout the town until 1873 when it was moved into the new Town Hall building. By 1903, the space in the Town Hall was becoming cramped and it was obvious that a larger space or separate building was necessary. In response to this growing need, Grace Wittemore, the librarian, corresponded with Andrew Carnegie and requested funds for a new building. A letter dated January 6, 1903, was received from Mr. Carnegie's private secretary.
