Library Expedition


Now September 1 - December 31, 2018

Plan Your Visit!

Love to visit libraries? This self-guided tour is for you! Visit as many of our 36 unique libraries as you can in September, October and November as part of the 2018 Upper Hudson Library Expedition!

Road trip to our libraries as a family, or grab your friends and create a team. You might even set up your own Expedition Challenge among friends - who can visit the most libraries?

Whether you travel in a pack or solo, you'll earn prizes when you've visited 5, 15, 25, and 36 locations. Each of our libraries has its own unique architecture, vibe, events, and collection - so the real reward is experiencing them.

To get your Expedition started, pick up a map at any library. Then plan your itinerary for visiting any or all of our 36 community and neighborhood libraries! Click here for a list of libraries, how to find them, treasures to look for, and – because we know how hungry a great library visit can make you - where to eat while you’re in town!


Do I need a library card to participate in the Expedition?
Not at all! You can visit any public library at any time whether you have a library card or not. We welcome you!

What do I do when I arrive at a new-to-me library?
Find someone who works there and tell that person that you're an Expedition visitor. Find out how to stamp your map and if there's anything special you should see at the library. Then look around and enjoy yourself! Before leaving, be sure to snap a photo of yourself, your team, or your family in front of the library.

This is fun! How can I share my photos and comments about the libraries I visit?
Use our social media hashtag #Library36er, post to the Upper Hudson Library System facebook page, or make a comment here. We'd love to hear from you!
