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?

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.

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