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?

Upcoming Fundraisers

Hello, everyone! We are so fortunate to have amazing community support for our library, and we have three fundraisers coming up to benefit the library.

  • Bill’s Barbershop owner Bill Hurst is offering free haircuts on Oct. 21 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in honor of his seventh anniversary. He will be accepting donations for the library on that day.
  • Hesston College & Lincoln Perk have teamed up for a community night on Oct. 21 at Hesston College’s final men’s and women’s soccer games. Lincoln Perk is donating coffee and hot chocolate, with proceeds benefiting the library. Donations also will be accepted for the library.
  • The Hesston Area Seniors will have a soup and pie fundraiser dinner on Nov. 8 at the senior center. More details will follow.

We cannot say thank you enough to our community for all of the support we’ve seen in the past few months. It’s paying off into a wonderful, beautiful new library that you all will be seeing very very soon!
