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 For Fines

Food For Fines Rack CardEven as a librarian, I have returned a few books late and…yes, have lost a book (I blame my kids).  The fees can quickly add up. At at balance of $10, library borrowing and computer privileges are suspended.

Now is the perfect time of year to “pay” down your library fines while helping those in our community.

All November long, we will take $2 off your library fines for every non-perishable food item that you donate.  Donations will benefit the Hesston Resource Center.

End the year library-debt free!
