Hudson: Upcoming programs at Hudson Public Library« Back to Events
Hudson – The Hudson Public Library, 3 Washington St., will hold five October events. On Saturday, Oct. 5, at 2 p.m., Jennifer Pustz, museum historian at Historic New England, will detail the everyday lives of domestic servants in 19th- and 20th-century New England. In her presentation, “Voices from the Back Stairs,” she will exhibit period domestic manuals, ephemera, and other general materials, with a particular focus on three Historic New England properties to bring the daily reality of domestic servants and their relationships with their New England employers to life.
A workshop, “Searching the Library Catalog,” will be held Monday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. Nicole, the reference librarian, will teach participants how to search for books and media from any computer; place holds on books and movies from other libraries; renew items from home; keep track of the items checked out; and take full advantage of the library’s offerings.
On Wednesday, Oct. 16, a presentation on “Haunted Lighthouses of New England” will begin at 7 p.m. Lighthouses are picturesque icons, but they also have a dark side. Lighthouses and ghost stories often seem to go hand in hand, as confirmed by the many horror stories and movies that have utilized lighthouses as their settings.
Jazz duo Ed Mascari on piano and Rebecca Wellons on saxophone and flute will perform Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. Their repertoire includes pieces such as Night and Day, When I Fall in Love, and Take Five.
Learn how to download eBooks and eAudiobooks to your computer, Kindle, Nook, or iPad at a workshop Monday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m.
