Hesston Public Library Closing

Hesston Public Library is dedicated to the health and safety of our patrons and staff.
We have not taken the decision lightly to close during this time of social distancing. We have been following the recommendations of the CDC, KDHE, and Harvey County Health Department. We have decided to close effective 3/16/2020 at 6:00pm. We will be evaluating the situation on a weekly basis.

The library closing details:
 We will have phone lines open between 9am-noon for reference questions. This will change if staffing issues arise.
 We will be answering emails during the closure- please email us at:
 We are asking that you keep all materials at home during this time. Our book drop will be locked during the closure.
 Due dates will be extended
 Fines and fees on checked out material will be waived
 Items on hold will be held for pick up when library location reopens
 Library study and meeting room reservations are all cancelled
 Library events are cancelled
 All updates can be found on our Website and Facebook page. These will be our main forms of communication.

Stay Safe and Healthy,
Hesston Public Library Staff and Board


Welcome to another great installment of

We have a fun photo challenge for today's #MondayMystery! And it should be fairly quick, too, because the whole point is that it doesn't have to be good!
We can't wait to see what you come up with!


Using only things laying around your house, make a costume that goes with a good book. Then pose with the book and share the picture with us!

If you need inspiration, eBooks totally count, too!

(And if you're feeling camera shy, feel free to dress up a reluctantly cooperative pet, or even a stuffed animal or statue!)

We ❤️ Sandra Boynton!
The cow does get a little help from a couple of friends. All practicing proper social distancing, of course!

🙋‍♀️ You may have noticed that we've been having some fun with emojis in our posts, lately. ☺️ What's YOUR most-used emoji? ❓📱💻🙂🙃🙂🙃😄
