Preschoolers

Join us for storytime at 9:30 or 10:30 on Wednesday mornings during the school year!  Geared toward ages 0-5, our theme for stories, songs, crafts, and snacks this year is “Read the Rainbow.”
We even provide Lincoln Perk coffee for a “mommy mixer” (and dads, grandparents, aunts & uncles…) between sessions.

But are there other library resources for kids who can’t read?  Absolutely!  You can still practice early literacy skills with your pre-reader.  The Kansas State Library promotes “6 by 6,” or six skills that will promote reading by age six:

6 by 6 poster

  • Have Fun with Books
  • Notice Print All Around You
  • Talk, Talk, Talk
  • Look for Letters Everywhere
  • Tell Stories About Everything
  • Take Time to Rhyme

The Hesston Public Library has plenty of books, DVDs, and even toys and activity kits* to help you and your child practice these skills.

*Ask staff at the desk about borrowing our 6×6 early literacy kits or storypack backpacks.
