Hudson Library Notes: Hogwarts after hours at the library

This fall, after the lights go down at the library, a limited few will join us for Hogwarts After Hours, a Fantastical Feast and Magical Fundraiser. Wizards 21 years and older can purchase tickets to enjoy the finest house-elf fare paired with drinks from Madam Rosmerta's stores. Throughout the night you will have several opportunities to showcase your knowledge of Hogwarts lore and immerse yourself in a magical experience.

Join your fellow library enthusiasts and Hogwarts alumni for a truly enchanted evening from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20. Hogwarts After Hours is a fundraiser hosted by the Hudson Area Library Foundation. The event proceeds will enhance the 2019 iLab programs that impact youth, teen and adult learning. Learn more and purchase tickets today — tickets are limited! Online donations are available on this event page, for those wizards who support the library but cannot attend. Tickets can be purchased at:
