    Is it possible to make a memorial contribution to the library? Do you have a minimum gift limit? Can we designate a specific book? I would like for it to be used in the children’s collection. Would it have a nameplate in the book saying that it is in memory of someone? Thanks, Stephanie Piston

    Hi Libby,
    Congratulations on your new position as the Hesston Public Library Director. As a former HPL librarian, I know Hesston is a great place to work with a very supportive community.
    I am available if you have questions about navigating your first director position. I might even have some answers :-). And if you want just a time to chat, maybe over a meal, please let me know. I’m sure you will also have ideas I can use in Newton.
