We have mixed feelings today:
It's almost the end of our busy summer season! 😁
We have no more summer pages to help shelve all the returns from the busy summer season. 😫
...

ITS THE LAST DAY to turn in your summer reading challenge sheets! Hesston schools start tomorrow and summer will be officially over. ...

Bring your little "Budding Reader" to the library each week for an interactive storytime filled with songs, books, a snack, and activities.

Because of the popularity of the program, beginning in 2017, we will repeat the program at 9:30 and 10:30 am - choose which time works best for you and your little one!

Storytime for Budding Readers - Weekly

Bring your little "Budding Reader" to the library each week for an interactive storytime filled with songs, books, a snack, and activities.

Reading just became EZ-ier!

For those who love the convenience of downloading ebooks and audiobooks to their personal electronic devices, the opportunity to sign on with two new vendors is underway.

The State Library of Kansas and our library are pleased to announce the Kansas EZ Library of digital books available to all Kansas library users. Acting on behalf of Kansas libraries, the State Library of Kansas has entered into agreements with OneClickDigital (for downloadable audiobooks) and 3M (for downloadable eBooks).

OneClickDigital for audiobooks is available via the State Library of Kansas and Hesston Public Library. Books can be accessed at this site www.kslib.info/digitalbooks. Users must have a Kansas Library card that can be requested at our local library.

Regular users of the download service will find the new interface with OneClickDigital much simpler and faster to use. Video and written tutorials are available at www.kslib.info/digitalbooks to assist individuals in using the new service.

In addition, the State Library will begin offering an ebook solution through 3M Cloud Library soon. Updates for the beginning of this service can be found on the www.kslib.info/digitalbooks site. The Kansas EZ library page also features other free audiobook and ebook resources available to Kansas readers.

On Dec. 5, Kansas ended its six-year contract OverDrive, a source for downloadable books. The books previously available for checkout through OverDrive and possibly on hold for patrons will no longer be accessible. However, thanks to the diligence of the State Library, many of the titles popular with customers have been transferred to the new vendors’ platforms, and now are available through the two new service!

(P.S. – The link to the State e-books and audiobooks has been added to Quick Links on the right-hand side of our homepage, for easy future access!)
