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.
