Hesston Public Library

If you've talked to us about the Summer Reading Program, you've seen we are doing things a bit differently this year for the "Reading Challenge." Thanks to Newton Public Library for sharing their process.

Each week, June through July, we'll have a new "Reading Ticket" available for pick up. The tickets are filled with lots of options to keep you and the kids reading (as well as collecting great surprises).

Oh dear, one of our librarians has a problem! We have ALLLLLLL these fantastic new games at the library, and she has no one to play with. So we were thinking about starting Grown-Up Game Nights.
(Think about it....whole evenings that don't involve "Candy Land" or "Sorry" or breaking up fights about whose turn it was.)
But we'd like a little input from the community to get us started. Most importantly, if this is something that would interest you, what evening would work best? Obviously, we won't be able to catch everyone, but scheduling them when nobody can show up isn't a great plan, either. Also, would you prefer that it be just for adults, or is there interest in letting teens join us?

A Shining Star

Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline has made a sizable contribution to the “From Ordinary to Extraordinary” Fundraising Campaign for our new library!

As a result, the new library will be home to the “Southern Star Fireside Reading Area” in honor of their generosity.

We are grateful for the leadership and community commitment Southern Star has shown, and we are proud to be the recipient of the company’s major gift for 2010. With companies like Southern Star leading the way, we will be able to meet our $250,000 goal and furnish a fantastic new library the community can be proud of!
