Happy World Book Day! šŸŒŽšŸ“–
Obviously, this is one of our favorite days of the year! To help you celebrate, today's Tuesday Titles post offers you a few fun book-themed titles.

(Here at the Hesston Public Library, we get to see a LOT of books. And sometimes the titles of those books really make us stop and think...or laugh...or roll our eyes...or check out the book! So we thought we'd start sharing some of those with you. Watch for our upcoming Tuesday Titles posts each week. Which of those books might you want to read?) #WorldBookDay #WorldBookDay2019

Hesston Public Library


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. SomeĀ of our current services include:

  • Free internet access: We have sevenĀ 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).
