With your Rodgers Library card!

  • You can also get eBooks and eAudiobooks through Overdrive.
  • Additionally, you can browse our eNewspapers (outside of the library you will be asked for your library card and PIN) and other eResources.

What if I don't have a library card or my library card is expired?

  • If you need a library card and live in Hudson, complete this simple Library Card Application. For anyone living outside Hudson, please complete the same form and include your out-of-town address. There is an annual fee of $50 for non-residents.
  • Library cards are available free of charge for anyone who works in the Hudson community (town hall, SAU 81, local business).
  • If your library card has expired, visit us in person with a picture ID and proof of residence. If you can't get to the library, then call for a temporary expiration date.

Can I get books or movies from other libraries sent to the Rodgers Memorial Library for me to pick up?

  • Yes! Interlibrary Loan (ILL) has been reinstated, and Rodgers Library cardholders can once again borrow materials from other libraries in the state. Call the library to place an ILL request, or complete this form.

How do I return items? Will I be charged an overdue fee?

  • Library materials can be returned through our book drop - located to the right of the front main doors - 24 hours a day, every day.
  • For the time being, we have suspended overdue fines. Fees for lost books are still in effect.
