Services

As a 21st century library, we are and strive to be more than just a storeroom for books. We offer programs and services to help meet the needs of our community, and we are always open for suggestions on ways we can serve you better. Some of our current services include:

  • Free internet access: We have seven patron computers available for general public use (subject to our Internet Use Policy) and two Early Literacy Stations for children. We also have free wireless internet throughout the library if you choose to bring your own laptop or mobile device. NEW: and we have WiFi hotspots patrons (age 18+) may reserve and check out for a week at a time!
  • Story Time: Each school year, preschoolers are welcomed at our weekly Story Time. Kids will enjoy engaging stories and activities designed to promote an early love of reading and learning. 9:30 or 10:30 Wednesday mornings.
  • Summer Reading Program: Each summer, kids and adults are invited to join us on our Summer Reading Program adventure. Special events will take place each summer, and readers who complete their summer reading goals will receive a prize.
  • Copying/printing, scanning and faxing: We have a public use copy machine/printer available at a nominal fee of 10 cents a page for black and white and 25 cents for color. Faxing is available for $1 a page. Library staff will scan a reasonable number of documents to email or USB storage at no charge as time permits. For scanning, please call ahead if possible.
  • Home delivery: For those unable to get to the library, we will bring the library to you! Contact the library if you are interested in having books delivered by calling (620.327.4666) or emailing (hesstonpubliclibrary@gmail.com). We also are able to help select and prepare books for individuals who send others to the library to pick up their books.
  • Schowalter Villa, Hickory Homes, and Hesston High School libraries:  We provide a rotating collection of fiction and nonfiction, regular and large print books to these locations.
