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?

    Is it possible to make a memorial contribution to the library? Do you have a minimum gift limit? Can we designate a specific book? I would like for it to be used in the children’s collection. Would it have a nameplate in the book saying that it is in memory of someone? Thanks, Stephanie Piston

    Hi Libby,
    Congratulations on your new position as the Hesston Public Library Director. As a former HPL librarian, I know Hesston is a great place to work with a very supportive community.
    I am available if you have questions about navigating your first director position. I might even have some answers :-). And if you want just a time to chat, maybe over a meal, please let me know. I’m sure you will also have ideas I can use in Newton.
