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?

We’re getting ready to move!

We are preparing to move into our wonderful new facility! In order to make the move, we will close at noon on Friday, Oct. 29.

Our ribbon cutting & grand opening will be Sunday, Nov. 7, from 2-5 p.m., and we will reopen regular hours beginning Monday, Nov. 8.

While most of our collections and our public access computers will remain available until we close and will be available the moment we reopen, there will be some items that will have to be packed early or unpacked later. Those include some of our videos and DVDs, puzzles, puppets, audiovisual equipment, records, and other collections. Please bear with us!

We will not be accepting Interlibrary Loan requests beginning Oct. 23. We will again accept requests once we reopen.

There will be no Story Hour on Nov. 3. It will resume the following week.

When we are closed, the book drop on the front of the new library at 300 N. Main will be available 24/7.

Thank you for your patience during this transition. We look forward to serving you in the new Hesston Public Library!
