“Did You Know” Hudson History Program

Did you know…

The Potawatomi Indians exchanged venison for brown sugar from the settlers?

A portion of rural Hudson Township owned a “telephone exchange” in 1902?

Pastime Park had a dance pavilion?

February 17 at 7pm come for the second “Did You Know” Hudson History Program sponsored by the Hudson History Club to learn more about the curious history of Hudson.

Internet to Go

Hudson Area Public Library patrons can borrow mobile hot spots to take the internet wherever they go.

A hot spot is a portable device that provides Wi-Fi internet access to computers, phones, or tablets. They connect to 4G LTE speeds through a cellular network. Library hot spots come with unlimited data and can connect up to 10 devices at a time. So, if you want a reliable internet connection for your devices on vacation or don’t have internet at home and have a project to work on, hot spots are a great option. Our hot spots work anywhere in the U.S. where there is Sprint mobile coverage.
