RESCUE HEROES STREET FAIR
This is the only Summer Reading Program this week and you won’t want to miss it. Meet our community’s “rescue heroes” from Police, Fire & EMS!
Boys + Books = Amazing Readers
The Hesston Public Library and Hesston Middle School Library are partnering to begin a new library program called “Guys Read.”
“Guys Read” is a monthly book discussion group open to guys in grades 5-8 and young professionals. The program is developed to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers by helping them find books they want to read and introducing the participants to male reading role models from around the community.
- “Guys Read” book discussions will be held on the last Monday each month from 7:00-8:00 in the Community Room at Hesston Public Library.
- The program is free and open to boys in grades 5-8.
- The first two discussion titles will be Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson in April and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card in May.
- The June read is My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
The Hesston Public Library received a $250 grant from the State Library of Kansas to purchase book club kits for the program which includes multiple copies of titles selected to appeal to guys, discussion guides for leaders/mentors and other book-related material.
For more information, or if you are interested in becoming and leader/mentor contact Emily at the Hesston Public Library, 620-327-4666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hesston Public Library holds several Special Collections and Archives that are unique to Hesston, Ks. Thanks to generous financial support from the South Central Kansas Library System and the Kansas Humanities Council, the Hesston Public Library has begun digitizing these fragile collections so that they can be more accessible to the public.
Access the Digital Special Collections at: http://hesston.digitalsckls.info/
March 13, 1990 Tornado Collection
The initial material has been digitized and uploaded to the Special Collections website, however additional material will continue to be added as long as the public is willing to share it with the Library for this purpose.
Future digitization efforts will include:
- Murray Bandy Archives
- Hesston Women’s Civic Club Archives
- Hesston Public Library Archives
- Yost Archives (limited material)
