Accessing the e-library

  • Most resources are available to anyone with a C/W MARS card. Some are only available to patrons with a Hudson Library card.
  • If asked to sign in you will need your library card # and your library pin. Default pins are the last 4 digits of the telephone # on file or your last name in CAPS.
  • If you are having trouble signing in, please contact the library for help.
