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?

Guys Read Book Club – Beginning in April

Boys + Books = Amazing ReadersGuys Read book club logo

The Hesston Public Library and Hesston Middle School Library are partnering to begin a new library program called “Guys Read.”

“Guys Read” is a monthly book discussion group open to guys in grades 5-8 and young professionals. The program is developed to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers by helping them find books they want to read and introducing the participants to male reading role models from around the community.

  • “Guys Read” book discussions will be held on the last Monday each month from 7:00-8:00 in the Community Room at Hesston Public Library.
  • The program is free and open to boys in grades 5-8.
  •  The first two discussion titles will be Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson in April and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card in May.
  • The June read is My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George

The Hesston Public Library received a $250 grant from the State Library of Kansas to purchase book club kits for the program which includes multiple copies of titles selected to appeal to guys, discussion guides for leaders/mentors and other book-related material.

For more information, or if you are interested in becoming and leader/mentor contact Emily  at the Hesston Public Library, 620-327-4666 or email hplnotifications@gmail.com.
