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?


The library will celebrate the life and work of Dr. Seuss on March 2, his birthday.

Preschoolers ages 3-6 are invited to a special Dr. Seuss storytime at 10:30 a.m.

Elementary school children are invited to Seuss-a-bration from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. at the library. There will be games, activities, snacks and a movie, all celebrating the spirit of Dr. Seuss!

Reservations for Seuss-a-bration are encouraged, but not required, and can be made by emailing hesstonpubliclibrary@gmail.com, calling the library at 620.327.4666, or in person.
