Get out the vote—for mittens

While you are hustling and bustling around town the next two weeks, make time to stop at the Hudson Library and vote. You won’t need a photo ID, passport, visa  or even a library card to make a choice.

You will be voting for the favorite mittens on the Merry Mitten tree that is the upstairs of the library.


This press release from the library covers the info you need to know:

   Mittens submitted to the library’s Merry Mittens contest will be put on display in the Library’s lobby from Dec.1 through Dec. 17. Library patrons may vote for their favorite mittens Dec. 2 through Dec. 10. Winners of the most creative mittens and the overall favorite mittens will each receive a cash prize of $25.

 Mitten-makers may pick up their creations on Dec 19. They may also choose to have the library donate them to a local charity.

 Almost like the Republican presidential candidates; there are 23 to choose from. Well, OK, these are ALL mittens, unlike the candidates. They also have a right and left feature; the mittens I mean. First time voters can work out any voting angst by partaking in this process.

 While you are at the library, make sure you take in the view of the river from upstairs; it’s as breath taking this time of year as any.
