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! ...

Seuss-a-bration draws a crowd!

A big THANK YOU to all of you who came to Seuss-a-bration yesterday! We had WAY more kids than we expected, so I know things were a little chaotic. We’re estimating more than 100 kids were here, plus 30-40 parents. Thanks for being so patient! We hope you and your family got something enjoyable out of the event.

We want to thank the parents who stepped up and helped out – you all saved the day! Because it was so busy, we weren’t able to hand out the parent survey we had prepared, but I would love to hear your feedback. How can we do this better? What types of events would you like to see for your kids and family? Email ideas to hesstonpubliclibrary@gmail.com, or call Cari at 620.327.4666.
