The War Memorial Library in Hudson is a non-profit registered charity providing a subscription library of printed and digital materials, primarily in the English language, to the residents of Hudson, Quebec and surrounding communities.Operated by volunteers, the Library is self-financing through membership fees, donations and fund raising activities. The Library in turn donates, to local charities, funds in excess of its own needs.The building and the Library serve as a memorial to those in Hudson who served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

New Opening Hours for January


                   Saturdays Only

                10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In light of the new measures announced yesterday evening, the library has decided to reduce its opening hours. For the month of January, we will only be open on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Note: we are closed tomorrow, January 1st, for New Year's Day.

In addition, we have established a maximum capacity of eight members in the library at the same time – this number includes the two volunteers on duty at the desk. Our previous mandatory measures – wearing a mask, sanitizing hands and keeping a safe distance – remain in place.
