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?

Summer Reading Program is coming to a close!

Despite the roasty-toasty temperatures, it’s time for our Summer Reading Program to draw to a close! We have one last event – our Pool Party from 6 to 8 p.m. this Saturday, July 30, at the Hesston Pool. This party is free and open to all Summer Reading Program participants and their families. (Children do not have to have completed their reading goal to participate.)

Children can turn in completed reading charts to earn t-shirts up until school starts. (We ordered our shirts locally, so if we run out of sizes, we can order more, so don’t fret about not having the size you need!)

If you had children or grandchildren participate in Summer Reading Program, please take a moment to fill out this quick survey to let us know what you thought and how we can improve. As always, you can send questions, comments or suggestions to me at hesstonpubliclibrary@gmail.com.

Thank you for a wonderful summer!
