Progress on our new space at the Greenport Town Plaza, 351 Fairview Avenue, Hudson, NY, continues apace, and we hope to re-open in October.
Once the new HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system is installed, the 14-foot dropped ceiling can be closed up, and what’s left to do is install the electrical outlets, clean and polish the tiled floor, and wire the space for internet. Then we move in, and you get to start borrowing books again!

Our immediate neighbors in the plaza include a chiropractic treatment center, with whom we will share an entryway and lavatories, and the studio of artist Robert The www.bookdust.com
who is known for his gun-books and other sculptures made from discarded books.
The Periodicals Service Company www.periodicals.com suppliers of back issues of out-of-print periodicals—another endeavor of our busy Premier Riverview landlord Robert Koskey— has offices in the front of the building and warehouse in the rear. Also in the rear is Premier Brands of America www.premier-brands.com suppliers of foot care, health, and beauty products.
Additional tenants include the new Hudson Carpet One Floor & Home store next to the existing Brands Farm Thrift Store; and of course the Price Chopper supermarket at the far end of the plaza. You can combine a shopping trip with your library visits.
With the budget cuts recently announced by society treasurer Jack Michael, we need your financial support more than ever. Please donate online at www.anthroposophy.org.
