The goal of the Hudson Area Library Oral History Project is to collect oral histories that enhance the library’s local history resources. The oral histories in this collection include recordings created by participants during a 2013 workshop at the library led by Oral History Summer School Founder and Director, Suzanne Snider, with assistance from Melinda Braathen, as well as recordings created by contract and volunteer community members on the library's behalf. This is an open collection and oral histories continue to be collected by the Hudson Area Library staff and volunteers.
