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?

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

Gilead is written as a letter from the aging John Ames to his young son. It chronicles the lives of three generations of Ames men who took different approaches to the same moral questions.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize (2005)
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award (2004)

Didn’t read the book? NO PROBLEM!

There are no tests, quizzes or uncomfortable moments in the Book TALK Series! Come listen to our guest speaker, Bill Brown, and enjoy a relaxing evening in the library.

Bill Brown is a professor emeritus of English and Humanities at Kansas Wesleyan University.
