Update: Valuable books are missing from History Room


The St. Croix County Historical Society is looking for 45 books and documents that have disappeared from the History Room of the Hudson Area Joint Library.

Some of the items are irreplaceable, and society members are afraid that more will go missing if security isn't improved.

The small History Room off a back hallway of the Hudson Municipal Building, in which the library is located, is a repository of rare and out-of-print books on the history of the Hudson area.
