Great Reads at the Hudson Library Courtesy of Hudson Garden Club
The Hudson library now has an extensive collection on gardening due to our donations over the decades--all due to the Hudson Home and Garden Tour support. These items are available for all patrons of the Cleveland Public Library system to check out via intra-library loan, so our outreach really does go far. Winter is re-appearing this week - perfect weather to curl up with a good gardening book.
Since 1933, HGC has been purchasing books, magazines and films for the local library as a way to fulfill the club's mission--spreading the knowledge and love of gardening. The additions to the library now number in the hundreds of volumes--all related to gardening. Topics include garden design, how-to manuals, gardening history, famous gardens, books on specific plants, landscaping, pruning, garden essays, photography of flowers, flower arranging, herbs, vegetable gardening and more.
Every year, the club donates about 30 adult and youth books to the Hudson library. HGC also funds gardening magazine subscriptions and videos. When a new book arrives, it is placed on the New Books shelf for six months before it is shelved with the general collection. Each item contains a book plate acknowledging our club.
This annual donation for the benefit of the Hudson community is made possible by the proceeds from the Hudson Home and Garden Tour that our club organizes every June.
