Hmmm...perhaps if the dog went to school to learn to be more fearsome people wouldn't put bows on him anymore? And maybe the boys are sword fighting because they're hangry and Mom or Dad could solve the issue by quickly pulling a good meal out of the freezer? #TuesdayTitles #OrMaybeNot #ButItCouldHappenThatWay ...

Ok, it's your turn again! How would you caption this picture of these #TuesdayTitles? ...

We have a winner! Our bookwalk challenge had over 100 entries and we drew our winner this morning. Congratulations to Amala for winning a Mini LED Projector, popcorn, popcorn bucket, and seasonings to host an out of this world movie night! ...

It's National Book Lovers Day!!! ❤️📚📖📔📘

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!
