The Chapter2Books store in Hudson is going to have to move. 

That's the word from owner Sue Roegge, who expressed hope Thursday of finding another space on Second Street. 

A change in ownership of the building at 422 Second Street is forcing the relocation, Roegge said by email.  

"We could go smaller but in the hope of moving bigger when something opened up," Roegge said. "We could do smaller by concentrating the sections that Hudson seems to want. Our events would probably be held offsite. It can work."

The store shared its bad news with public messages on its Twitter account Thursday afternoon: "Booting us out in a couple months. bah humbug" and "Don't plan on closing, just want to move." 

Roegge opened the store with her husband Brian in 2011. Chapter2Books hosts frequent readings and other events

Roegge said she has a vision for a bigger store: "My dream would be to go slightly larger so we have a separate-ish space for events and book clubs and kid's activities. This dream would include partnering with someone who would want to run a cafe."
