Hesston Public Library

1. Adults & teens, come to game night on Friday! You need at least one last hurrah before school starts, right? www.facebook.com/events/2128681174041419/
2. Our games will be moving away from the display table next week. Never fear: their new home will be in the Specialty section, by the fishing poles & pickleball sets (What? The library has fishing poles and pickleball sets? Yes, yes we do. You can check them out.).
3. In case you're feeling generous, or cleaning out your own game cabinet, here's what I (Emily) still wish we had: a.co/3DwpphP . Used copies are great, if they still have all the necessary pieces!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?

Everette Bradley ROCKS! ...

Library Legacy

Karen and Ellen have represented the face of the library for many patrons’ entire lives.  With 70 years of combined experience, they know the library’s collection and the community better than anyone.

Library Board member Erik Lange said the Hesston community found two uniquely dedicated individuals as Librarians.

“Hesston has been lucky to have Karen and Ellen do such a fine job for such a long period of time.  It is very rare in this day and age for anyone to show such dedication and commitment to one job for such a long period of time.  Their experience at the library and their knowledge of the community will be missed,” he said. (Hesston Record, 12/3/2013)

Be sure to stop in before December 21st and wish Karen and Ellen well on their next adventure!
