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?

Children’s computers are here!

We are pleased to announce we’ve added two new children’s computers to our library!

These Early Literacy Stations are designed for children ages 2-10. They have a kid-friendly, easy to use interface, an interactive touch screen, and more than 50 educational games, covering math, reading, science, geography, and more.

These computers were purchased with funds raised by the Hesston Area Seniors and with a grant from the State Library of Kansas.

We encourage you to bring your children in and try the computers out – let us know what you think!
