We have very high winds in Hesston today, but nothing like what residents experienced on this date in 1990. View photos, video, and other artifacts from the Hesston Tornado at

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!
