Hudson Library gets new signage through grant from Mountain Findings

Visitors to the Highlands Hudson Library will see new signage while strolling the aisles through a grant from Mountain Findings in 2021.

With the new signage in place, Hudson Librarian, Carlyn Morenus; President of Mountain Findings, Carol Misner; and Hudson Library Board of Trustees President Andy Chmar recently met in the library’s lobby to recognize a job well done.

The grant was used to significantly underwrite the design, fabrication, and installation of the new signage throughout the inside of the Library and over the two entrances.

A year-long project involving members of the board, Highlands resident and artist Rosemary Stiefel, and the Hudson Library staff; the signage was designed by Greenville-based McMillan Pazdan Smith, LLC and fabricated by 2/90 Sign Systems from Michigan.

“With Mountain Findings’ generous support and the talent brought to bear both in Highlands and through our outside contractors, the improvements in the Library’s overall appearance and the users’ experience are incalculable,” said Chmar. “We hope as visitors come in the Hudson Library, they’ll pause to enjoy these enhancements. We are most thankful for Mountain Findings great support across the community and their partnership in making this project a reality.”
