Library Day Sponsor

Libby day sponsor 5.19.16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hesston Public Library Board of Trustees sponsor today at the library in honor of Director Libby Albers, who recently completed her Master of Library Science degree through Emporia State University’s School of Library and Information Management (SLIM).

Please join us in congratulating her.  Great work, Libby!

The Library Board developed the Day Sponsor idea in 2012 as a way of helping the library “go the extra mile.” The library’s tax revenues support regular operations, but day sponsorships allow the library to go above and beyond in the areas of collections, programming and technology.
Honorees are recognized at the library, online, and in the local newspaper, and at a small reception at the library.  Day Sponsors also receive recognition through collection items in the library being designated in honor of the celebrated event/person/organization.
Contact the library if you would like to sponsor a day at the library!

Author Visit and Book Signing

TTB book signing fb headerPlease join us on Tuesday, October 13th from 1-4PM.
Books will be available for purchase.

Audio Book SYNC

Sync-HeaderLove Audiobooks? Every summer SYNC provides FREE downloadable audiobooks of Young Adult books that are paired with classic books.

http://www.audiobooksync.com/

Here is the catch – two new books are available each week, but you have to download them THAT week or you have missed your chance.  Once downloaded, they are yours forever (or until you decide to delete them).

The program kicked off this week with “Beautiful Creatures,” by Kami Garcia paired with one of my all-time favorite books, “Rebecca,” by Daphne Du Maurier.

Scoring 28 free new reads for your ears is a great way to enjoy the summer!
