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?

Food 4 Fines

Do you have overdue fines on your account that you need to pay? Here’s a way for you to clear off those pesky fines while helping a valuable community resource!

During the rest of November, we are partnering with the Hesston Area Chamber of Commerce to collect items for the Hesston Resource Center.  As part of this campaign, the library will cut overdue fines in half if you bring in two items off the list below.

Food 4 Fines does not cover fees for lost or damaged materials. The “discount” will be applied only to one card, and only applies to fines on the card at the time the items are donated. No “discounts” will be given beyond the 50%, but you are invited to donate more items if you would like!

Requested Items:

  • Christmas Candy
  • Brown/Powdered Sugar
  • Hot Chocolate Mixes
  • Microwave Popcorn
  • Graham Cracker Crusts
  • Jar or Canned Gravy
  • Healthy Cereals
  • Tooth Brushes
